Elkay's annual "School for Success" hosted rep firms from across North America for a five-day information session on products, programs and service enhancements.

Highlights for the 2004 school included two plant tours: the Broadview, Ill., sink manufacturing facility and the Savanna, Ill., water cooler and drinking fountain plant.

2004 marked the last for the training school's facilitator, Bates McIndoe, manager of specialty plumbing products. He retired after 23 years with Elkay.

Since the program began in 1986, it has educated more than 600 sales reps and company associates.
