Milwaukee, WI., July 1, 2022 -- Zurn Water Solutions and Elkay Manufacturing have combined to create Zurn Elkay Water Solutions—one of the largest providers of water management solutions to improve health and the environment. The combined company offers the most comprehensive product portfolio for vertical segments providing water quality and water conservation solutions to critical areas including education and healthcare.
“The addition of Elkay is part of our ongoing strategy as a pure play water business to create significant value for our stakeholders,” said Todd A. Adams, Chairman and CEO of Zurn Elkay Water Solutions. “This combination brings together two iconic brands that serve the same end markets with complementary products, shared values and cultures: ultimately creating an unmatched portfolio of water solutions in North America. Together we can provide customers the capability to advance their sustainability initiatives while reducing their initial and operating costs and providing a hygienic environment for the end-user.”
With a mission focused on healthier hydration and hygiene, reliable water has never been more important than it is today. Zurn Elkay will continue to focus on the health of children in schools by encouraging the use of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds to provide healthier, more hygienic solutions to their students. As a part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP), ESSER provides funding to support the safe, hygienic reopening and operations of schools following the COVID-19 pandemic. Zurn Elkay’s product portfolio includes a high-performing package of hygienic and hands-free solutions that will help bring schools up to today’s health standards.
“We are thrilled about this partnership as we look to strengthen our ability to provide fresh, filtered water in a smart and efficient way,” said Ted Hamilton, President of Elkay at Zurn Elkay Water Solutions. “By combining the two brands, we know this will only make us stronger as one company. We are well on our way to enhancing our portfolio, advancing the size of our business in the coming years and increasing our advantage competitively within the water solutions industry.”
Zurn Elkay employs more than 2,600 people primarily in the United States with an industry-leading sales rep network, premium complementary brands, and a combined 224-year history of best-in-class performance. The shared culture of Zurn Elkay focuses on serving customers, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and a commitment to water and environmental stewardship to the communities where employees live and work.
“Our customers will have the ability to advance their Environmental, Social, and Governance initiatives with overall reduced operating costs while providing a safe and clean environment for patrons within the commercial facilities and private spaces they operate.” said Craig Wehr, President of Zurn at Zurn Elkay Water Solutions.
Together, Zurn Elkay leads the way with water solutions for a wider range of customers backed by the same premier customer support.
