Over the last ten years we have launched over 100 products including: 2000 First menu driven, graphics display, dry film thickness gauge. 2007 First Dry Film Thickness gauge with Bluetooth ® . 2011 First Dry Film Thickness gauge with user upgradeable firmware. 2012 First digital surface profile gauge for convex substrates. 2015 First ulttrasonic thickness gauge with Bluetooth ® . Our growth has been made possible through product innovation, investing in our , working alongside Sellars & Co Starch & Soap Manufacturers is founded. 1850s 1890s Company begins to make cement and the ELCO brand name (East Lancashire Chemical Co) is born. Company name changes to East Lancashire Chemical Co. and moves to Manchester. 1947 The business develops the first coating thickness gauge, the ELCO Meter 1818 Just as NACE has been a leader in corrosion control for 75 years, Elcometer has been leading innovaters in coating inspection equipment for over 70 years. The original Elco Meter was launched in 1947 and in the same year, our first export sale took place to BAMR, a family owned business in South Africa, who are our distributors to this day. Ever since the first Elco Meter was launched, Elcometer has been a company of product innovation with a series of industry firsts. 1947 World's 'first' coating thickness gauge. 1959 World's first transistor based dry film thickness gauge. 1970 First pocket sized dry film thickness gauge with single tipped probe. 1973 Wo r l d 's f i r s t s i n g l e probed, dual ferrous, non-ferrous gauge. 1978 First digital dry film thickness gauge. 1981 First microprocessor based dry film thickness gauge. 1986 First dry film thickness gauge with alphanumerics.

This led to Elcometer gaining ISO 9001 accreditation in 1994, ISO 14001 in 2001 and ISO 9000:2015 in 2018. But our development does not stop there. We have also continually upgraded our ElcoMaster ® data management software for PC and mobile devices. In the last 6 years ElcoMaster ® has been downloaded by almost 40,000 users across the globe. However, the real key to our success is working in partnership with you, our customers. By working together and listening to each other we have built relationships that have spanned decades. Thank you.
