The company was founded in 1925 by Hermann Moeck in Celle. In 1960 his son Dr. Hermann Alexander Moeck Jr. took over the business. The current owner is Sabine Haase-Moeck.
The company produces recorders for beginners and handmade instruments for soloists. They began as a publisher in 1929/30 as part of the youth movement in Germany, later adding recorders manufactured by Markneukirchen, and began manufacturing their own instruments in 1949. Beginning in 1966 they worked with Friedrich von Huene to develop their Rottenburgh model line. Moeck formerly manufactured historical instruments such as crumhorn, rauschpfeifes, shawms, cornetts, and dulcians designed by Otto Steinkopf, but the Renaissance and Baroque Woodwind Instruments division was closed in December 2008.
