Named after the original company which built ELCOs beginning in 1892, the Electric Launch Association is a simple, informal private organization whose primary objective is to provide a line of communication between persons interested in ELCOs.

The data contained in this site is the result of 40 years of "messing about" with ELCOs and digging through many directories, registers and other document sources. Should you come across an error, omission or useful information, PLEASE bring it out to attention via e-mail. We greatly appreciate your contribution.
