Elkay Interior Systems Acquires Digney York

Representatives of Milwaukee, WI-based Elkay Interior Systems (EIS) today revealed the American company’s acquisition of Digney York Associates (DYA). The move strengthens Elkay Interior Systems’ ability to provide full-service interior design and renovation services for domestic hospitality customers who are refreshing their brands.

DYA is a hotel renovation business specializing in guestroom renovations. The company offers services that span from pre-construction through the construction phase of renovations.

Elkay Interior Systems—or EIS—is a global leader in the design, branding, seating, decor and fixtures for the commercial interiors industry. The company, which is owned by privately held Elkay Manufacturing, specializes in the restaurant, retail, education and hospitality markets. It has been helping global brands manage their retail brand experience in international markets for nearly 40 years.

“We’ve been on a tremendous growth path since being acquired by Elkay in 2017,” said Tony Lutz, VP/general manager. “In February 2017, we integrated the commercial arm of Elkay’s business in Mexico to form Elkay Interior Systems, Latin America…and in 2018, we expanded into the Asian markets. With the acquisition of Digney York Associates, we have brought a premier interior renovations firm into the fold, expanding our turnkey rebranding and renovation capabilities in the domestic hospitality market.”

EIS consults, designs, builds and installs commercial interiors, from concept to completion. Its designers and artists provide vision, strength and consistency while bringing clients’ brands to life. Specialized project managers and market managers carefully guide project goals, timelines and budgets. Extensive manufacturing facilities and certified installers ensure flawless execution of every element, according to the company. After opening day, the company supports clients through an expert international customer service team.

EIS works with a premier list of domestic and international customers, many of whom are actively expanding in the European and Middle Eastern markets.

“We are excited about becoming a part of Elkay Interior Systems’ organization,” said Kevin Cronin, chief operations officer at Digney York Associates. “With Elkay’s expertise in designing, fabricating and installing millwork and fixture packages in the hospitality industry and our own in guestroom renovations, we are ideally suited to provide added value to our customers. We are a perfect fit, culturally speaking, and the EIS businesses are producing great work for our shared customer segments—so we are proud to be joining such a well-respected team.”
