American Ring, a family owned and operated manufacturer and supplier of retaining rings, snap rings, and Belleville disc springs, is pleased to announce the acquisition of all tooling, dies, equipment, and intellectual property of S&M Retaining Ring.

Founded in 2001 by Michael O'Shea Sr, S&M Retaining Ring produced tapered section retaining rings, stamped out of carbon spring steel, stainless steel (PH 15-7 MO) and beryllium copper all to the ASME B18.27-1998 and MIL_DTL 21248 specifications. A gifted tool and die engineer, Mike O'Shea had over 40 years of experience in the retaining ring industry, having worked for Waldes Truarc, Rotor Clip, and Industrial Retaining Ring. Upon his death in May of 2017, the O'Shea family wished to see his legacy live on, and American Ring is pleased to fulfill their request.

With the acquisition of S&M retaining ring tooling, dies, equipment and intellectual property, coupled with American Ring's exceptional engineering and customer service, we are excited about the product offerings we will be able to bring to the marketplace.
