Rich in history, our strength lies in our innovation and concern for our customers.
As a family-owned business, Elkay has a history of manufacturing innovative products and delivering excellent customer service. From our simple beginnings on Chicago’s north side to our present position as a supplier of complete kitchen products, we have always remained focused on key objectives--designing our products and adapting our businesses to serve the changing needs of our customers.
Please take a few moments to journey back with us to our beginnings and see how we have grown from a three person shop to an international company with over 3,800 employees!
In 1980, Elkay expands into the retail market. The Neptune brand is established and sold in retail stores, primarily through "do-it-yourself" type outlets. Elkay receives the International Customer Service Association (ICSA) award for a manufacturing company in 1984. Gourmet Cuisine Centré is introduced which provides a combination sink, garbage disposer bowl, built-in drain board, and cutting surface.
