Congratulations to Sloan Valve Co., which was recently named the 2009 Century Award recipient in Loyola University Chicago’s Family Business Center’s 16th annual Illinois Family Business of the Year Awards. This award program recognizes exceptional Illinois-based family businesses that demonstrate a strong commitment to business development, family and the greater Illinois community.
Current Sloan President and CEO Kirk Allen
is the great-grandson of Sloan founder William E. Sloan. “My
great-grandfather invented the Flushometer, which is now a common plumbing
product in restrooms today, and we continue to tap our family-driven
entrepreneurial spirit to innovate and manufacture water- and energy-efficient
plumbing systems,” Allen announced.
An awards gala honoring the winners and finalists will take
place Dec. 2 at The Four Seasons Hotel-Chicago.
