Earl L. Morris (1913-2003), the founder, was born in Los Angeles, California. During World War II he sold pipe, valves and fittings, and other related products to many Southern California shipyards.
As World War II was ending in 1945, Earl Morris established the Earl L. Morris Company. The Earl L. Morris Company, a manufacturer's representative, was founded on the principle of selling only the finest engineered plumbing products. The company prospered and in the early 1950s, the name was changed to the acronym ELMCO Sales, Inc. In 1954, a new manufacturing division was established, called Acorn Engineering Company.
Both Acorn Engineering and ELMCO Sales occupied the same building in Los Angeles, California into the late 1950s. In the beginning, Acorn Engineering Company primarily manufactured a broad line of floor sinks and prefabricated stainless steel shower equipment. As Acorn's product line expanded, the foundation of Acorn remained steadfast: to design and produce the finest quality plumbing products at competitive prices.
Acorn Engineering Company quickly grew to become a world leader in the manufacturing of stainless steel plumbing fixtures, valued in correctional facilities and high-traffic areas for their vandal resistance and durability. The latest technologies in laser cutting and deep-draw press have only served to reinforce quality and longevity.
Acorn Engineering Company expanded through growth, acquisitions, partnerships, alliances and jointly owned companies. The group of companies and partnerships came to be known as the Acorn Family of Companies. In 2012, the name Acorn Family of Companies was changed to Morris Group International to better reflect the diverse nature of the businesses and product lines.
Morris Group International includes 13 divisions and partnerships. From stainless steel toilets, to engineered plumbing and drainage products, to vacuum plumbing systems, our products come out of our many facilities in North America ready to meet the needs of any construction or building project. Because we research, design and manufacture our own products, customers have the benefit of going to one supplier to get the job done with choices that meet ADA requirements, environmental concerns, and the highest standards for safety and design.
Today with over 75 patents and several major product lines that include thousands of products, Morris Group International operates with over 1,500 employees and over 1.5 million square feet of office and manufacturing space in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.
