Escalette LLC was founded by Geoff Escalette, former co-owner and president of BrassTech / Newport Brass in California. At the time of acquisition by Masco in 2002, his company was the largest independent manufacturer of decorative faucets in the U.S.A. Following the sale of BrassTech, Geoff founded Escalette LLC / RSS Manufacturing in 2010, returning to his roots in the OEM Plumbing Fixtures and Fittings business. The company’s management team has over 150 years of experience directly related to this market segment. Escalette LLC is proud to be producing in the U.S.A. and operates from a 65,000 Sq.Ft. factory and company headquarters located in Costa Mesa, CA.
Escalette LLC is acquiring certain assets of Elkay used in the Phylrich business with the intention of carrying on the Phylrich tradition of providing high end plumbing products for the home. As part of the asset transfer, Escalette LLC will acquire inventory as well as the Phylrich trademark, designs, 800# and URL. Phylrich products – including the most popular designs and models – will be manufactured and supported by Escalette LLC.
As part of this purchase, Escalette LLC has agreed to take over all warranty obligations, past and present, as outlined in existing product warranty statements. Going forward, customers will have a single point of contact for all new and replacement Phylrich parts and products. We anticipate a brief transition period, between now and April 13, 2012, during which Elkay will continue to support incoming orders. After April 13, all incoming orders will be handled by Escalette LLC. Escalette LLC will announce their sales team and Phylrich marketing contacts shortly after this transition is complete.
