Buffet Crampon

One quest for perfection, five instrument families

Buffet Crampon is the second largest manufacturer and distributor of wind instruments in the world. Based in Mantes-la-Ville, the group’s history dates back to 1789 (when the first Antoine Courtois trumpet was created) and 1825 (with the first Buffet Crampon clarinet manufactured in Paris).

Buffet Crampon, the iconic brand of the Group, is the world’s leading manufacturer of professional clarinets. The group benefits from the unique know-how at its French and German production sites.

Through its own global distribution network that includes subsidiaries in the United States, Japan, Germany and China, the group generates 95% of its revenues outside France.
