Elkay Manufacturing Company turns 100! Founded on the north side of
Chicago in 1920, Elkay has been making innovative products and
delivering exceptional customer experiences for one hundred years.
As we head into our second century, we will be taking time
throughout the year to pause and reflect upon all that has changed,
all we have accomplished, and the many hundreds of people that have
made this company something to truly be proud of. For example,
while proud to be America's No. 1 selling kitchen sink company,
Elkay expanded its commercial offerings more than four decades ago,
and today delivers faucets, water coolers, drinking fountains,
Smartwell Water Delivery Systems, and the award-winning ezH2O
bottle filling stations, in addition to world-class stainless steel
and quartz sinks. Our Elkay Interior Systems business is a global
leader in the design and buildout of branded retail environments
for leading global brands. Elkay Commercial Systems provides
stainless steel products for commercial kitchens around the globe.
What makes Elkay special is our people and our culture. Many
companies have core values that are enshrined in their annual
reports, and posted in frames on their walls. But few companies
embrace and live their values quite as Elkay does. On any given
day, you'll hear employees quoting them in meetings, as the
rationale for why they make business decisions. One of Elkay's core
values is--"We are in Business Forever."--We are family-owned and
believe our people and business partners are an extension of our
family. Like your family, Elkay has values and traditions that
endure, and help us live up to this lofty goal. Examples include
our commitment to sustainability and giving back to our community.
Our water delivery products have helped keep over 20-billion
plastic bottles out of landfills. Over the past decade, Elkay and
our employees have donated over $3.8-million to worthy causes in
the communities where we work and live. Utilizing their paid
volunteer time off, Elkay employees have donated countless
thousands of hours serving those in need in their communities. Our
conservation and sustainability efforts reflect our concern for the
future and our commitment to building a better world. To learn more
