Elkay Manufacturing Company began as a vision for Leopold Katz and his son Louis in North Chicago in 1920.
Their goal was to manufacture sinks of the highest quality and provide exceptional service. The result: a prosperous company created one satisfied customer at a time.
In 1969 the production of Drinkers and Coolers for the North American market began.
In 2010, Elkay introduced the award-winning EZH2O water bottle filling station, forever changing the world of water supply. This innovative and environmentally friendly product is instantly popular for its ability to reduce the waste of PET plastic bottles in landfills.
In 2017, Elkay acquires Interior Systems Inc. Operating as Elkay Interior Systems, the company expands Elkay's ability to provide design, engineering and manufacturing services for various segments such as retail fixtures, fast casual dining, hospitality and education.
Today its largest market is the best-selling stainless steel sink in the United States. Through the years, Elkay has continued to launch new products, designs and innovations, and serves as a thought leader in an incredible variety of different industries. Elkay is still owned and operated by the original founding family, providing thousands of jobs that support American families and communities.
