There have been at least a dozen companies that have made Wagner pianos. That would indicate that not one of them cared about them enough to protect the name.

I believe there are many companies selling Wagner and I think it's a name for stencil, at least it's like that for Malaysia. I don't think they have their own factory to build piano.

If the Wagner that you encounter is from Malaysia, then I can tell you something.
There's a few Wagner from a few factories.
As far as I am concerned, their grand piano come with 2 lines, the HG series and the RE series.
THe HG series is made by Hailun in Ningbo, China. Hailun piano has been receiving positive comments in PW here.
On the other hand, the RE series is made by Pearl River in GuangZhou, China. It's a line requested by Wagner Piano Sdn Bhd so that full Renner action is used. I think the Renner hammers are also used as well.
In addition, they still stock one unit of their older model, the WG. They have one WG185 on the floor and is made by Young Chang's factory located in Tianjin. This particular unit is currently on sales and it comes below RM20k, cheaper than the HG baby grand (5'3" if I am not mistaken.)

Anyway, I think there's another Wagner in US and possibly in other areas. Tell us where you are from to further assist you!

There is a factory in Malaysia and is called Musical Product (M) Sdn Bhd. If I am correct it was established in 1975 by the Hoe family. Wagner Piano Sdn Bhd was one of the family members. Earlier Wagner was imported as (CKD) from UK. When the factory was up the Wagner was produced there. Today, the factory produces Challen, Barratt & Robinson, C. Steinbert and few other marques. The factory marketing company is Vienna Music Sdn Bhd. Regards
