Manuel Rosales returned to Los Angeles to serve as the area service representative for the Schlicker Company and established his own firm, Rosales Pipe Organ Service in 1973. In 1980, Rosales Organ Builders, Inc., was formed during the construction of his Opus 9 for First Presbyterian Church in Granada Hills, CA.

[Editor's note] The two firms may have merged, the website gives the company name as "Rosales Pipe Organ Services" and lists all opus numbers under that site.
