Founded in 1927 under the name Detroit Tap and Tool Co.. a manufacturer of cutting tools for the auto industry, Spiralock evolved over the years, tapping into new markets and industries with new types of products. The real breakthrough came in 1979 with the introduction of the Spiralock® internal locking thread form system. Successfully adopted by NASA on their space rocket engines, it soon became the choice of many of today’s engineers to prevent or solve screw threads from coming loose in a wide range of applications.
Located in Chesterfield, Michigan, with operations in Europe, South America, and Asia, Spiralock serves a multitude of industries worldwide including aerospace, heavy truck, military, automotive, diesel engines, medical, farm and construction, oil and gas, and others.
