Headquartered in beautiful and historic Charleston, South Carolina, Christoph Paccard Bell Foundry has built a solid reputation based upon the very high quality of our work that includes bronze church bells, church and college / university bell and clock towers, bell automations, restorations and repairs, tower clocks, and professional installation and service. Our design team can help get your project off the ground; our fundraising support and experience can help make your project a reality.
In our unique line of work, we are blessed with the deep experience, musical craftsmanship and artistic creations of our 200+ year old bell foundry partner, the Paccard Fonderie des Cloches of Annecy, France. Our expertise, craftsmanship, and guidance in the creation of bronze bell and tower clock instruments, bell towers, clock towers, glockenspiels, musical sculptures, electronic carillon and chime systems is the result of years of experience among all of our company disciplines and the team work and collaboration that we enjoy.
The tower instruments we work with our clients to create, construct, install and service are designed to last for generations, even centuries, and to be a reliable, acoustically and aesthetically pleasing enhancement to your community.
Bellfounding is the casting of bells in a foundry for use in churches, clocks, and public buildings. The process in East Asia dates to about 2000 BC and in Europe dates to the 4th or 5th century. Learn More at Wikipedia
