QLF Custom Pipe Organ Components

What We Do

We assist organ builders in the realization of their projects. Our experienced team can assist with aspects of the initial design right through the realization of already completed designs. Since 1998, QLF has assisted a wide variety of companies and individual organ builders throughout the United States and Canada.

 

A significant portion of our work includes the building of casework, and QLF has been instrumental in the realization of a large number of projects. Our skilled staff and modern facilities can handle projects of any size.

 

QLF provides slider chests and organ consoles in various degrees of completion. Some organ builders decide to have us build only the core and complete the rest themselves; others have us build the complete component. We can also assist with the design and layout.

 

We also offer other types of chest work, structural and case parts, enclosures, winding components, liturgical furniture, and architectural millwork.

 

Through the application of CNC and CAD technology in all aspects of our production since 1998, we have the experience and knowledge to assist our customers efficiently to very exacting standards.

Our Mission

We help small and large organ building companies with the accomplishment of their projects. With our expertise, skilled staff, and facilities, we provide services and components to complement their work. With our help, customers are able to extend their resources as organ builders.



Our History

The beginnings of our company date back to when Patrick Quigley first began his work with pipe organs at the early age of 16. He took on an apprenticeship with the prestigious organ-building company, Harrison & Harrison in Durham, England, in 1966. After working for organ builders in England, Canada, and the US, Pat founded Quigley Designs in the early 1990s in Houston, Texas.

 

Increase in work prompted a relocation to Virginia and the formation of QLF Custom Pipe Organ Components, LLC in Rocky Mount, Virginia in 1998. In January 2014, Pat sadly passed away after a prolonged illness. The company is now under the direction of Thomas Rohlfs and Jeremy Quigley.

 

Thomas Rohlfs has been active in organ building since 1978 and learned the organ building trade in his native Germany. He worked as an organ builder in Germany, New Zealand, and Canada and has gained extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of organ building. Thomas is our operations manager and oversees the business as well as the organ building technical side of QLF.

 

Jeremy Quigley worked with his father ever since childhood and the beginnings of Quigley Designs and QLF. He is an accomplished woodworker and our production manager. Jeremy makes sure that production is running smoothly in the shop and during installations.
