ELGA was founded in 1937 by Walter Lorch and originally manufactured small domestic electrical appliances. Driven by problems of limescale in steam irons caused by hard water, the company moved to water purification systems. Though distillation was at the forefront of water purification limitations of the technology provided a driver for change. Lorch’s invented & developed deionizer had great potential in other applications, notably research labs.
