Snell was created from the merger of Snell & Wilcox and Pro-Bel in 2009.

History

Snell & Wilcox was founded by Roderick Snell, in 1973.

Pro-Bel was founded in 1977 by a team of engineers from the BBC and EMI in response to an industry demand for quality router products.

In April 2008 Snell & Wilcox launched AmberFin—a new company created as part of the Snell & Wilcox Group—as a dedicated home for its iCR software.

In April 2009 Snell & Wilcox merged with Pro-Bel. The resulting company took the name Snell.

In March 2014 it was announced that Snell has been acquired by Quantel.
