    I have been working at Elkay Manufacturing full-time


    Elkay is a solid family owned company that has been in business for 97 years. The company has built a solid foundation of values that drives the business. Offers a great benefit package to go along with competitive wages for the areas that are operated in. Managers at all levels of the company are approachable.


    As with many businesses, there are many competing priorities. Some of the product lines are very complex.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the core competencies and further the stability of existing product lines. As new product is introduced, look to fit with existing processing before driving for something new. Make sure to keep the top priorities small and drive the focus.
