The Gulbransen Company began operation in 1904 producing pianos and reed organs. In 1930 Gulbransen aquired the radio manufacturer Wells-Gardner but kept the name as a division of Gulbransen. In July 1957, Gulbransen introduced its first electronic organ - designed by Richard H. Peterson. This was the Model B (Model 1100), a spinet that was the first transistor organ in the industry. Then they produced in 2050 North Ruby Street, Melrose Park, Illinois. Gulbransen eventually merged with Seeburg, and then the entire operation was absorbed by C.B.S. Gulbransen is now a division of Mission Bay Investments producing Elka organs with the Gulbransen name.
