Excelsior Accordions Co. was established in New York in 1924. The high quality accordions manufactured by Excelsior made the brand name quickly popular throughout the United States. The greatest popularity of the Excelsior accordions was reached after the Second World War as they became a "must" for any big orchestra: Charles Magnante, Art Van Damme, Pietro Deiro Jr. are just a few among the many prominent players who chose Excelsior.

In 1948 a new plant was established in Castelfidardo, Italy, to expand productions and sales. Since then the excellent sound, quality and fine look of the Excelsior accordions have been appreciated all over the world.

Today CEMEX S.r.1. - Compagnia Elettro Musicale Excelsior -, still makes accordions using the most selected materials and according to the best traditional craftsmanship. CEMEX S.r.1. is the biggest accordion manufacturer in Italy: in its modern facilities, located close to Castelfidardo - the accordion home-town - more than 2,000 professional accordions are built each year, mainly for export.
