The Elkay plumbing group began in 1920 with the formation of the Elkay Manufacturing Company by Leopold Katz and his son Louis. Throughout the years Elkay focused on developing and manufacturing the highest quality stainless steel sinks and faucets while committing to first-rate customer service.
Elkay's innovative products and production techniques propelled the company to our current position as the world's largest manufacturer of stainless steel residential sinks.
As the nation's construction market boomed, so did the needs of Elkay's customers and Elkay responded by offering other products that would further meet the demands of our customers. Elkay began producing its own line of water coolers and acquired Cordley TempriteŽ and later, Halsey Taylor. Further acquisitions followed including the purchase of Revere sinks and expansions into the international market through the purchases of E.B. Técnica, the largest stainless steel producer in Mexico and Vinca, a Mexican manufacturer of composite sinks. Finally, Elkay expanded its faucet offering by acquiring Phylrich International, known for producing high style faucets and other powder room and bathroom fixtures.
Throughout the birth and growth of the Elkay plumbing products group, the leadership and vision of Elkay's founders has been maintained: provide better customer service, higher quality and more innovation than our competitors. The Elkay plumbing products group now serves wholesale plumbing, retail and specialty channels in the United States, Canada, Mexico and other selected international markets and continues to keep our values firmly in place as we grow.
