When you make a significant investment in a musical instrument, doesn't it make sense to check on the financial strength of the company that makes it? As part of the world famous Roland Corporation, Rodgers has unique advantages in financial backing and technology development that are not enjoyed by any other company in the industry.
Roland has been Rodgers' corporate parent since 1988. During that time, Rodgers has become the only church organ company in the world with such solid financial backing. In the most recent fiscal year, Roland reported revenues close to $1 billion in U.S. dollars. A copy of corporate investor information for Roland is available from your Rodgers representative.
What does this strong financial position mean to individuals and congregations that purchase Rodgers organs? For one thing, Rodgers is able to continually invest in research and development. One result isRodgers Organ Architect, a web-based organ design system that offers you the ability to truly design the instrument for your particular needs. With this system you can design the console, chose the physical layout desired, the actual musical specification and the sound samples used with each stop.
Another example is Rodgers' magnificent sound, resulting from development of our exclusive Parallel Digital Imaging (PDI) technology. PDI is the only digital organ tone generating system that generates and distributes the sound of a given stop on a given note in parallel, meaning that it ultimately is sounding through multiple audio channels at the same time.
Perhaps the most important advantage of all is long-term support for your organ purchase. While no one can predict the future, we certainly believe that Rodgers is the organ company with the best likelihood to be there in the future, whenever you need us.
