USA based business that also has a manufacturing presence in Canada and China, specialises I the musical education market although it has been moving into other educational sectors recently. The company no longer supplies any musical instrument or basic educational products per se, but rather is a provider of hardware accessories, primarily of the heavy duty kind such as and stages, platforms, acoustic treatments, rigs. trolleys, stands and desks etc.

Since much of the company's products are intended for musical activities that are not a big feature in education outside of North America (Marching bands etc.), Wenger is almost completely unknown outside of the continent despite being very well known over there in the sector. In the past the company has been involved with a number of products often under other names, it founded the Coda Music Software company in 1988 for instance, but that company was the original developer of the Finale .
