Solon Manufacturing Company, a premier designer and manufacturer of Belleville spring washers, is proud to announce the celebration of its 75-year anniversary. Since its inception in 1949, Solon Manufacturing Co. has been dedicated to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction, and this milestone marks a momentous journey of growth and success.

From humble beginnings— four college friends in a 3,000 sq. foot garage in Solon, Ohio, culminating in a move to a 30,000 sq. foot facility just north of the famous Chardon Square in the center of the state’s snowbelt.

“Celebrating our 75th anniversary is a wonderful opportunity to appreciate our history and how far we’ve come,” said company CEO, Diane Popovich, “Solon has enjoyed significant growth since the early days. Our 50 team members and their commitment to our core values is a testament to our culture— where our customers are the final and most important beneficiaries of outstanding teamwork.”

Solon Manufacturing Co. continues to thrive on the ideals of its founders—refreshing industrialism through creative problem-solving and collaboration across its engineering and manufacturing teams— which makes Solon Manufacturing Co. a recognized name in fastening solutions across many industries. Customers have come to depend on Solon for reliability alongside its projects when it comes to unique industrial bolting applications. Through a shared corporate core focus of ‘we make bolting better®’, the Solon team remains steadfast in exploring new ways to continuously improve product manufacturability and quality, while enhancing the customer experience.

“We are grateful to our customers, suppliers, and employees for the confidence they have placed in us for the past 75 years. They have established the foundation that positioned us for growth and keep us striving for excellence as we look ahead to the next 75 years,” said Popovich.

Solon’s Belleville washer products are high-performing conical-shaped springs that deflect at a given rate, serving as the cornerstone solution for applications subjected to heavy vibrations, cryogenic processes and extreme temperature cycling found in industries from energy to aerospace.
