Organ builder

Brødrene Torkildsen Orgelbyggeri A/S (translation: Torkildsen Brothers Organ Building Company) is a Norwegian organ building firm, founded as Brødrene Torkildsen Harmoniumsfabrik (Torkildsen Brothers Reed Organ Factory) in 1882. Its workshop is located in the village of Åsen in Levanger, not far from Trondheim, and the Torkildsen family (third generation) is still in charge.

Torkildsen has completed 160 major pipe organ jobs, new organs as well as re-builds and restorations, since delivering their first pipe organ in 1888. Several new instruments in later years have improved their reputation considerably, most notably the 2003 III+P/38 organ of Levanger Church. Works in progress include a new III+P/43 organ for Steinkjer Church. Torkildsen also maintains the large electro-pneumatic organs of the Cathedrals of Nidaros and Bodø.
