From The BBC:

"Steinway, maker of the famous pianos, is being acquired for $438m
(£288m) by the private equity firm Kohlberg & Co.  The 160-year old
firm had previously announced it was looking for a buyer. ...

The company, which was founded in 1853 in lower Manhattan by
German immigrant Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg (later Henry E.
Steinway), still has manufacturing facilities in Astoria, Queens and
Hamburg, Germany.
