Born in Racine, Built in America
In 1927, the world’s first food waste disposer was created a few blocks from our current World Headquarters. Racine architect John W. Hammes came up with the idea, perfected and patented it, and founded the company that from day one has been the world’s largest manufacturer of disposers.

Much of our growth is due to our committed partnership with plumbing contractors. Since the 1940s, InSinkErator® has been the first choice of plumbers, builders and kitchen dealers with good reason: it’s the reliable brand they can install and literally forget. In addition, our products are available at leading appliance retailers and home centers.

As the best-selling food waste disposer brand in the world, millions of InSinkErator® disposers are manufactured annually. We’re also the leading brand of instant hot water dispensers and point-of-use water heaters. Today, InSinkErator® has operations in over 80 countries worldwide.
