Organizational Announcement

May 3, 2024

Elkhart, IN – Conn Selmer announced today that it is reducing its Elkhart, IN based workforce of around 400 people by approximately 5%. The positions being eliminated are in its South manufacturing facility in Elkhart, Indiana as the company has found more cost-efficient ways to manufacture certain student level clarinets offshore without any compromise in quality.

This strategic shift also allows the company to concentrate on the domestic production of advanced and professional musical instruments, which have been a hallmark of American craftsmanship for over 150 years.

The company was able to offer positions at its North facility to some affected employees who have transferrable skills.
