The Elkay Manufacturing Company began as a vision of Leopold Katz and his son Louis on the North side of Chicago back in 1920. Founded with the goals of manufacturing the highest quality sinks and providing the best service possible, the company began to thrive. As time went by, we set the pace with new products, designs and innovations that continue to lead the industry. Today, with more than 3,500 employees worldwide, we are proud to be America’s number-one selling stainless steel sink company.
To meet the demands of a changing marketplace, over the years we have expanded from our base business to include the manufacture of faucets, water coolers, drinking fountains and bottle fillers. We then added a cabinetry division and achieved our goal of being a more complete supplier of kitchen and bath products for both residential and commercial installations.
We all have the responsibility to leave the business stronger than when we started. Continuous improvement is necessary for growth and continued future success. Visit our Recruitment site to learn more about Elkay’s History and Company Values.
The same goals that began three generations ago continue today. As a family-owned company, we're dedicated to your complete satisfaction. Above all else, our word is our bond. We honor our commitments with integrity to our customers, employees, suppliers and the communities in which we live and work.
