The company KETRON was founded in February 1981, with the fundamental objective of manufacturing products oriented towards the solo entertainment musicians and amateurs. Its premises are located in the central part of Italy in the industrial Area of Ancona, since the foundation of the company.
From the beginning, the main points of it's business operation and strategy have been the idea that the company had to realize technologically-advanced products (with this main goal, the largest part of its financial resources have always been invested). The wish to produce products that satisfied the customer's needs.
A portable organ was the first product made by the end of 1981. During the year 1982, digital technology was researched in order to follow the technical advances and one year later in June 1983 a product, designed as a result of that technology, was released to the market.
Production on the same line went on until 1985 when the organ market collapsed.
Other profitable outlets were then obtained by turning the organ output into that of accompaniment instruments, as Programmer 24, Accordion modules which have been successfully carried on until 1991 when the Multisynthesis technology was deeply researched. As a result, the new MS products (MS40, MS50/60, MS100) were designed and developed.
They have been very successful produced for almost 8 years and these instruments are probably the most long-lived products in the Arranger Keyboard and Expander Module field, as they have tested the true test of time.
During the following years the company has put on the market many other products in the arranger category such as the Keyboard X1, the Sound Module X4, and the SD1.
After, new products in the mid-range keyboard line have recently been designed and produced such as: the XD9 keyboard, the sound module XD3 and the VEGA, a keyboard fully designed for people performing Arabic music.
A couple of years later a new technology was implemented to develop the present line of products such as the top Arranger Keyboards Audya, Audya 5 and the Arranger Module Audya 4.
Todate a new step ahead has been made and new products have been introduced on the market: MIDJPRO Multimedia Player, GP1 Portable Electronic Piano, SD1000, SD7 Arranger Keyboard & Player.
It is our inspiration and desire to continuously develop musical instruments as a response to the demands of our customers, for which Ketron is one of the unique companies who truly "listens" to their customers
