The Elkay plumbing group began in 1920 with the formation of the Elkay Manufacturing CompanyElkay focused on developing and manufacturing the highest quality stainless steel sinks and faucets while committing to first-rate customer service. Elkay's innovative products and production techniques propelled the company to their current position as the world's largest manufacturer of stainless steel residential sinks.
As the nation's construction market boomed, so did the needs of Elkay's customers and Elkay responded by offering other products that would further meet the demands of their customers. Elkay began producing its own line of water coolers and acquired Cordley Temprite® and later, Halsey Taylor. Further acquisitions followed including the purchase of Revere sinks and expansions into the international market through the purchases of Wessan Plumbing in Canada, E.B. Técnica, the largest stainless steel producer in Mexico and Vinca, a Mexican manufacturer of composite sinks. Finally, Elkay expanded its faucet offering by acquiring Phylrich International, known for producing high style faucets and other powder room and bathroom fixtures.
Throughout the birth and growth of the Elkay plumbing products group, the leadership and vision of Elkay's founders has been maintained: provide better customer service, higher quality and more innovation than their competitors.
To meet the demands of a changing marketplace, over the years Elkay has expanded from their base business to include the manufacture of faucets, water coolers and fountains. Elkay then added a cabinetry division and achieved their goal of being a more complete supplier of kitchen products. Recently, they broadened their scope to address the emerging world market of water filtration products and now offer their customers the benefits of their extensive research.
Throughout Elkay's growth and expansion, Elkay has continued to recognize and respect the value and commitment that each employee brings to the company. Elkay's employees are their most important asset and they are rewarded for their hard work with respect, job satisfaction, and increased opportunity.
Elkay is now a family of companies that employ over 5,000 people in production and distribution facilities throughout North America and select international markets. As the Elkay family expands nationally and globally, their commitment stays the same: complete customer satisfaction, continuous improvement, and employee involvement.
