The company founder Ernst Schreiber went to Tyrol with his family in 1977, where he began to work with them and a few staff members to build clarinets, oboes and piccolos. Since 1981, they had specialized in clarinet mouthpieces. They were stamped "Ernst Schreiber Tirol" and are still in use by many musicians.
Since in Austria an expansion of the production site was not possible, the entire company moved back to Germany in the fall of 1988, Michelstadt in the Odenwald, where since then ESM mouthpieces lovingly and made with much commitment. It supplies not only Europe, but also America and Asia.
Ernst Schreiber was still allowed to experience that his business has been continued in his spirit since the handover to his daughter Cornelia (managing director) and his son-in-law Paul Kinzelmann (authorized signatory and technical director) since 1996, and that the products are steadily gaining a reputation among musicians and instrument makers enjoy. He particularly enjoyed the export of the products, which could be expanded worldwide. In the year 2000, Ernst Schreiber unfortunately died much too soon after a long and severe illness.
The specialization on professional mouthpieces, as well as special student areas required an expansion on meanwhile 4 CNC web milling machines and several fully automatic CNC lathes. One of the priorities of the company ESM are further and new developments.
