Continuing its year-long celebration of 30 years in business, Canadian cymbal manufacturer Sabian has opened a museum at its factory is Meductic, NB. The museum houses artifacts, awards and memorabilia from Sabian’s history, including an extensive collection of photographs dating back to the 1970’s when the factory was first opened.
"It's easy for important moments in any company's history to be forgotten as time passes, so it was important for us to start the process of archiving those moments now," says manager of Canadian sales & artist relations Terry Ryan, who headed up the museum committee. "In our case, the history of the factory is very closely tied to the history of the community. We have families who at this point have had three generations working at Sabian."
The museum will be open year-round during factory hours.
