Walter Thür Orgelbyggen (Walter Thur Organbuilders) was a Swedish organbuilding firm established in Storgatan, Torshälla, Sweden, in 1968 by Walter Thür. The firm built over 200 instruments, most of them for the Church of Sweden. There is one known instrument by the firm in the United States; it is in the chapel of The Swedish Seamen's Church (Svenska Kyrkan) in New York City. The firm closed in 2004 following the death of Walter Thür.
