History

Shur-Lok Company
was founded in Los Angeles, California in 1951 by Frederick W. Rohé and remains a private concern today. Although no longer involved in the daily operation of the business, the company's dominance in its key product lines is due in large part to early patents awarded to Frederick W. Rohé.

From this one-man embryonic beginning, Shur-Lok has expanded into a worldwide organization, with headquarters in Irvine, California and an independent affiliate, Shur-Lok International S.A., based in Belgium. Over the years, Shur-Lok has helped give birth to other fine organizations, including Rohé Scientific Corporation, a supplier of ultrasonic diagnostic equipment for health care; Shurtronics Corporation, an early pioneer of nondestructive testing equipment; and a Belgian manufacturer of control rods for aircraft.

Shur-Lok has built a solid reputation as a leader in fastener innovation for high technology industries. The company's focus is strongly on aerospace, an area where Shur-Lok has demonstrated exceptional problem-solving expertise, developing thousands of proprietary aerospace fastener designs, many of which have become industry standards.
