Elo Touch was founded in 1971 and is a former subsidiary of Tyco Electronics Corporation, a multibillion dollar company which was founded in 1941. Elo’s an American company which manufactures touchscreen components, monitors and all-in-one touch computers. Elo’s headquarters are in Milpitas, CA. and it has offices in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific region. Its manufacturing and research and development facilities are centred in Kessel-Lo, Belgium, Yokohama, Japan and Su Zhou, China.
In 1971, Dr. Sam Hurst developed a touch sensor while he was lecturing at the University of Kentucky. It was patented by the university and called the “Elograph”. It wasn’t a transparent touchscreen like today’s, but it was a significant development and was listed as one of the 100 Most Significant New Technical Products of the Year 1973.
By 1974, Sam Hurst and Elographics had developed a transparent touch screen. In 1977, Elographics produced a resistive touch screen, which is the most popular one used today. It was in 1994 that Elographics changed its name to Elo Touch Systems. Sam Hurst is still one of the key executives within the company. Leading brands such as Giorgio Armani, L’Oréal, KFC, Pizza Hut and Sonic, all use Elo POS solutions.
