Over the years, we have expanded our shop facility to meet the growing need for space. We started out with one brick building and since have added two adjoining buildings. Our shop facility has thousands of square feet of workspace. The shop is divided into several departments: office, woodworking, pipe servicing, voicing area, solid state electrical, leathering and an erecting area. The erecting building with a 24' ceiling, allows us to completely assemble an instrument prior to delivery in a temperature-controlled environment. The location of the shop couldn’t be in a more pleasant setting.
The day the organ arrives at its new home, makes a great opportunity for community building and creating a sense of ownership of the new instrument. There are many jobs to be done, even for those of no great strength. Many people have told us that delivery day is an event that brings whole congregations together, and becomes an historic milestone in the life of the church, one that today's children will tell their grandchildren about.
Following the completion of the installation, a team of Milnar Organ voicers working under the direction of the Tonal Director; adjusts the tone and volume of every pipe. This adjustment is to fit the acoustical setting in order to create a beautifully finished musical instrument.
