Kilgen Organ Company, like M.P. Moller, maintained a series of 'service stations' around the country to help with installations and perform service and repair work.
"In 1958, the Kilgen Organ Company of St. Louis, Missouri, a major builder of thousands of pipe organs, closed its doors. Several of its branch offices throughout the United States continued on their own as pipe organ service companies and retained the Kilgen name." Jerome Schaedle
These companies serviced all Kilgen organs in their areas, but also worked on other brands.
