SNEP – the inventors of the slotted self-locking nut

In 1918 SNEP was established as a manufacturer of high quality fasteners for the growing Aerospace industry. In 1954 they invented the original slotted nut as a new/revolutionary locking mechanism to provide greater performance than ever before. Today the SNEP slotted self locking nut is still being manufactured in Montbrison, France and sold all over the world into many industries.

Over the last 50 years SNEP has continued to refine its engineering expertise and production capabilities through CNC and screw-machining processes. These processes allow SNEP to manufacture virtually any large nut range and any drawing parts to even the most demanding customer specifications. Today the SNEP factory is full of high quality, efficient machinery dedicated to the design and production of locking nuts as well as a huge variety of other customer-specified, machined parts.
