100 YEARS OF...
Family Owned Since 1920...
Elkay Manufacturing Company began as a vision of Leopold Katz and his son Louis on the North side of Chicago in 1920.
Their goal was to manufacture the highest quality sinks and provide exceptional service. The result: a thriving company built one satisfied customer at a time.
Today, we’re proud to be America’s number-one selling stainless steel sink company. Through the years, Elkay has continued to launch new products, designs, and innovations, and serves as a thought leader in an amazing array of different industries. Elkay is still owned and operated by the original founding family, providing thousands of jobs that support American families and communities.

Coming in 2020: Dart Canyon™ ADA Dual-Depth Sink
The first of its kind, the Dart Canyon™ stainless steel farmhouse sink reflects Elkay’s passion for innovation, by providing better everyday solutions to the Americans with Disabilities Act community and beyond.
Designed to comply with ADA Accessibility Guidelines and ADA compliant when properly installed, a raised work shelf at the front of the sink acts as a convenient storage solution for kitchen tools and allows for tasks to be completed while seated. The sink opens to an extra-deep 9″ bowl for room to stack dishes, fill stockpots and fit baking sheets.
