100 YEARS OF...








Life's Moments





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.

Lustertone Iconix™ Sink

The Lustertone Iconix™ stainless steel sink collection is expanding in May 2020 to offer more sizes and variety. Lustertone Iconix brings the winning combination of a sophisticated look and a forgiving finish to the home and beyond in 16- and 18-gauge options. The tight corners and flat bottom of this design allow for more space inside the sink. Sound Guard® sound-deadening pads minimize sound and vibration for a quieter time at the sink.



Fireclay Workstation Sink

Our portfolio of farmhouse fireclay sinks is expanding to offer homeowners more design options. These workstation sinks come with a custom-sized walnut cutting board that slides along a built-in sink ledge, helping homeowners maximize their workspace in the kitchen, while keeping their counters clutter free.


Circuit Chef™ Custom Sink

Elkay’s Circuit Chef™ stainless steel sink infuses all of your kitchen tasks into one flawless system. This multiuse sink with included accessories gives you the flexibility to prep, cook, serve, entertain and clean up all at one convenient workstation.

Crosstown Kitchen Sink

The popular Crosstown® stainless steel sink collection now offers two new options – workstation sinks and extended-length farmhouse apron sinks available in July 2020. 


The new workstation design accommodates custom-sized accessories and maximizes workspace in the kitchen. Slide accessories back and forth along the built-in sink ledge to transition from washing and chopping to straining and even clean up.

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.
