Williams Piano Company


The Williams Piano Company was started in Toronto in the year 1849, and eventually relocated its factory to Oshawa in 1889. The company rapidly became one of the most prominent of its kind, shipping products to at least seven nations worldwide. At the height of its popularity, Williams Piano employed around 250 workers, who helped establish it as a premiere creator of pianos and other musical instruments. The company did not survive the Depression and ceased operations in Oshawa in 1934. The factory building, which sat on the north side of Richmond Street West between Simcoe and Church (now Centre) Streets, was torn down in 1970 to make room for a new headquarters for the Durham Regional Police.
