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.
