About Us 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 about Elkay’s corporate responsibility

Elkay’s employees are at the heart of everything we have ever
accomplished. Through their bright minds, we’ve developed many
breakthrough innovations that have shaped the way we live in this
country and around the world. Through their clever hands, strong
bodies and deep, unwavering commitment to quality, we’ve risen to a
place of recognition and respect in the community and in the
markets we serve. We would be remiss, as we pause to consider the
past 100 years of success, not to mention our profound gratitude
for each and every one of our people that have been a part of Elkay
through the years. We hope you’ll consider joining us and sharing
100 years of great adventures yet to come.
