1915
E.L. Wiegand Edwin L. Wiegand, a young, brilliant, self-taught engineer was granted his first patent for inventing a resistance heating element embedded in an insulating refractory enclosed in a metal sheath. This invention was ahead of its time. Who could imagine that electric heat would become an integral part of cooking, home heating, and manufacturing processes?

A few years later, with one employee, the company was founded in a small room in Pittsburgh, PA. They received their first order for a strip heater, which paved the way for today's modern household iron. Edwin needed a name for his new company. He chose a name that reflected on his new product. Combining the word “chrome” found on a strip heater and “locks” because a cement mix locks in the heating element, he came up with “Chromalox.” The company grew rapidly
