EAST FARMINGDALE -

A Long Island-based company has been making guitar strings for decades and they are shipped all over the world.

Jim D'Addario is the CEO of D'Addario & Co. His family business makes more than 700,000 guitar strings every day at their Farmingdale factory.

The business started along the Italian countryside in the late 1600s.

The D'Addario name has made its mark in the string industry ever since.

Part of their success lies in the machines that are made on the premises.
