Since 1962, Elco has been partnering with brands and retailers, both large and small, to bring their products to life.

With full-service capabilities, we handle each and every aspect of the product development process, from research and development to production and fulfillment. Elco also manufactures the branded Fresh Solutions® line, cost-effective, superior-performance home cleaning products.

Elco, a division of Chicago Aerosol, has extensive manufacturing and packaging capabilities that include a long list of product forms, such as liquids, creams, aerosols, gels, tablets and vacuum bags, belts and filters. All of our products are subjected to rigorous quality standards and adhere to applicable regulatory guidelines.

Innovation is what sets Elco apart. World-renowned chemist Dr. Bhupen Trivedi spearheads our Research and Development laboratory, which is responsible for many of the commercially available products you see today. Bhupen's vast technical expertise and in-depth knowledge of all the latest raw materials enables Elco to provide its customers with products that meet and exceed any competition.

Elco is constantly looking for ways in which to reduce its footprint. The purchasing of components and the formulation of products, the use of post-consumer content and recycled material, and the management and disposal of waste are all carried out with the utmost respect for the environment. A large number of our Fresh Solutions® products bear the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Safer Choice” certification*, a program designed to ensure that every chemical, regardless of percentage, is evaluated by the EPA to ensure that it is safe for you and the environment.

You can find Elco-manufactured products in virtually every leading retail home goods, hardware and grocery store in the U.S. – including Sears, Target, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Meijer, Shopko, Ace, True Value, Home Depot and more.
