In May 2014, Henri SELMER Paris launches a new brand SeleS to complete its range of musical instruments, respecting the values held by the SELMER family since the creation of the company in 1885.
Since the beginning, the production of Henri SELMER Paris instruments has taken place at their factory in Mantes-la-Ville, France, using world-renowned know-how, their production is unique and authentic as much for the quality of their design as for their respect for the traditional craft of instrument manufacturing.
To respond to the ever-changing needs of musicians, Henri SELMER Paris now offers, with its brand SeleS, a range of instruments adapted to various budgets.
To do this, Henri SELMER Paris has met numerous challenges through its investment in research and development, which has allowed the company to streamline their manufacturing process and to standardize certain procedures. The company has also invested in new manufacturing tools in order to optimize production time. Furthermore, external industrial collaborations enable Henri SELMER Paris to offer a larger range of instruments.
In order to perpetuate their history and tradition, instruments destined for exceptional use continue to be wholly manufactured using our longstanding instrument-manufacturing traditions in our factory in Mantes-la-Ville, under the brand Henri SELMER Paris.
Instruments made using the most recent technological and industrial innovations appear under the brand SeleS, created for this occasion by the Selmer family.
