Steger 6r Son s tPiano factories
Has fouJ gigantic plants in one covering,
with' eectric power plant and lumber yards
23 acres of ground. They are locatad in
the town of Steger, III., 29 miles from Chi
cago, and are supplisd with lumber from
the mills of Messrs Steger & Sons, who
own thirty thousand acres of virgin forest
located in the state of Wisconsin.
These facts are cited to give you a basis
from wh'ch to reason. With so enormous
a plant, capacity 20,000 pianos per year.
with vast purchases of supplies for spot
cash, with the neccessary capital to buy the
beat of material and the best of workman
ship, the prospective buyer needs no furth
argument to prove that S,teger & Sons are
in a position to give greater values for the
money than any other piano establishment
ment in the world.
It taes great execute aqility to manage
such a gigantic factory successfully and af
ter the pianos are built the great problem is
how to market them with the least expense
The resourcefulness of Mr. Steger was
equal to the occasion. Backed by $2,000,
000 capital, he threw open the doors of the
"Bank of Stager," placing credit and capi
tal in the hands of a network of Pacific
Coast agencies on the ingenious plan of
monthly payments from dealer and custom
ers, (a purelX Steger lnuovation) In place
of long time given to firms who represent
state agencies, thus placing the small deal
er on equal footing with the larger dealers.
The wholesale prices to dealers ars bas
ed not on their capital or their individual
business, but on the distribution of 10,000
pianos yearly for the states mentioned a
bove. It is doubtful whether the three largest
piano houses on the coast market this
many pianos during the year. '
Don't you see that Mr. Steger has solved
the problem of marketing the finished pro
duct of the largest piano factories in the
world with the least possible expense to tha
This is an age of keen business competi
tion and rivalry, and the successful mer

marketing his goods.
