Bell Foundry

Company open to the public in Champéry
  • Jean-Denis Perrin and his son Hugues are some of the last traditional bell-founders in Switzerland. In their workshop, they have twenty different molds in which more than 9 generations have poured their metal alloy, made from a secret, ancestral recipe.

  • This traditional foundry creates molded and forged brass and iron cowbells as well as brass plaques and name-plates entirely by hand, using ancestral methods over a century old.
