Pakrashi & Co. is a very traditional harmonium maker from Calcutta. The company was founded in 1922 by the brothers Sudhir Chandra Pakrashi and Hem Chandra Pakrashi. In 1978, Sudhir's son Suphal Pakrashi took over the management. In the meantime, Sudhir's grandson Suvojit Pakrashi is the third generation to run the business. Pakrashi is known for high quality and pioneering innovations. Among other things, Pakrashi has invented sliding keyboards (scale changers) and folding mechanisms for harmoniums.
