Elkay’s Plumbing Products Division announced it will be streamlining its faucet manufacturing facilities. Targeted for completion in November of this year, the company’s commercial faucet production will be moved from a company-owned St. Charles, Ill., facility to another company facility in Savanna, Ill. The move will provide faucet expansion for the education, healthcare, hospitality and public venues segments the Commercial Business Unit currently serves. 

The Residential Business Unit produces three brands of faucets: Elkay-branded faucets are currently manufactured in the St. Charles, Ill., facility, while Phylrich and Doralfe production is located in Burbank, Calif. After manufacturing consolidation, all three faucet lines will be produced in one larger, more efficient company-owned facility on the East coast; this new facility will provide for future portfolio expansion and incorporate the latest faucet manufacturing technologies. Targeted completion for the residential faucet manufacturing consolidation is December 2009.
