Justin Diter was born in Mirecourt (Voges) France in 1866. In Mirecourt, Diter was able to complete an apprenticeship with Paul Bailly.
In 1896 Diter established a workshop in the Passage de l'Arque in Lyon in association with Charles Reuche. Diter later moved to Marseille in 1897 taking over M. Richelme’s workshop at Cours Saint Louis. His brother Paul later joined him in 1901 who is a bow maker. At that time the two brother’s names are written on the labels of their instruments.
Later in 1927, Paul Diter had an associate by the name Paul Lorange. During those times, around 40 violins bearing the label of Diter and Loragne were created. In 1933 Lorange succeeded the Diter brothers and took over the shop. Justin Diter died in 1943.
