The York Band Instrument Co. began as J. W. York and Co. founded by James Warren York (1839-1927) in 1882 in Grand Rapids, Mich. Initially they imported musical instruments and sold them, then later (by around 1900) they began manufacturing their own instruments. The name was changed to York Band Instrument Co. in 1926. In 1940 the company was sold to Carl Fischer Musical Instrument Co. and became a subsidiary of Carl Fischer. In 1971 York was sold to Tolchin Musical Instruments and moved to Melville, N.Y.
