In the spirit of entrepreneurial cooperation, the Gretsch Company has registered the URL www.est1883.com and is developing a website that can help promote all organizations that have “Established 1883″ in common. Designed as an Internet portal for American companies founded in 1883, the website will serve as a single online location for providing information and upcoming events in celebration of the 125th Anniversary and beyond.
Since 1883, the Gretsch Company has designed and manufactured the world’s best drums, guitars, and musical instrument accessories. The year 2008 will mark the company’s 125th anniversary. To commemorate the legacy as well as celebrate the “first year of our next 100 years”, Gretsch has planned a worldwide celebration, including publicity campaigns, limited edition instruments and identity items, and special events. In the course of planning for 2008, the Gretsch Company discovered that many other leading American companies and institutions were also established in 1883.
