Bergenblad & Jonsson Orgelbyggeri AB (formerly Nye Orgelbyggeri AB) is situated in the middle of Småland, in southeast Sweden, in the village of Farstorp, Vetlanda. The surrounding area has long been a center for cabinetmaking, where already in the middle of the19th century Johannes Magnusson was building pipe organs in Nässja and Lemnhult.

The organ workshop in Farstorp was founded by Nils-Olof Berg in 1969. In 1988 the business was taken over by Åke Bergenblad, who today runs the business under the name Bergenblad & Jonsson Orgelbyggeri AB, together with his business partner Mats Jonsson. The firm has five employees in a young and enthusiastic team, which is proud of its craftsmanship and which makes virtually all organ parts in its own workshop.

In recent years this organ workshop has specialized in the stylistic reconstructions of new instruments behind old facades, as well as restorations of historic instruments.
