Early 20th Century Industry

Two of the owners of the Moraine Develop Company, Charles Kettering and
Colonel Edward Deeds were responsible for rapid changes in the course of history.
They formed the Dayton Engineering Laboratories Company (Delco) and experimented
with starting, lighting and ignition systems for automobiles. After inventing the
self-starter, DELCO manufactured the systems. In 1915 Kettering invented the delco-Light
set which enabled isolated farms-previously lighted by kerosene, candles or gas, if
available-to utilize electricity. The sets were manufactured on this site in Moraine with
that building later utilized by the Frigidaire Company for the manufacture of self-contained
refrigerators.
