Since 1946, SNC Manufacturing Has Taken Pride In Our Ability To Produce Transformers And Magnetics In Virtually Any Size, Configuration Or Quantity.


In 1946, John Vette, Jr. bought a transformer company located in Glenview, Illinois. Named after its original owner, Swain Nelson, SNC began to make a name for itself by building transformers for the television and radio industries.  To keep pace with increased orders and better serve customers, in 1948 Mr. Vette moved the company to Oshkosh, Wisconsin where he and his family owned the land needed for expansion.  A converted chicken coop and an old sheep barn on Fahrnwald Farms was home to the new manufacturing plant and a dedicated crew of SNC employees built transformers at the farm for nearly 20 years.

During those first two decades of operation, SNC established strong business relationships with several key customers, allowing the company to expand into new markets and increase business.  To accommodate both current and future business growth, Mr. Vette decided to break ground in 1966 for a new facility at the company’s present location on Waukau Avenue in Oshkosh, WI.

With its roots still firmly planted in this progressive Midwestern community, SNC Manufacturing Co. has extended its reach far beyond those humble beginnings.  In 1992 SNC opened its first offshore production facility in Cd. Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico.  In 2007, SNC opened a production facility in Jiangsu Province, Changzhou, China.

As the company continues to move forward in the 21st century, SNC Manufacturing has positioned itself as a recognized leader in the transformer manufacturing industry.  Now serving a broad range of industries from Automation Controls to X-Ray Systems, SNC Manufacturing continues to focus on the core business practices upon which the company was founded – to provide customers with nothing less than the finest product quality and customer service every single day.
