Message To Our Community

Elé Corporation is a locally-owned, independent, single-facility, company. We are a longstanding and engaged member of the McCook and Lyons communities; this is where we live and work.

Recent changes to EPA standards have created concerns around exposure to ethylene oxide emissions. In an abundance of caution, Elé has conducted extensive voluntary testing of our facility, which unambiguously confirms that Ele is operating well below the limits set by the USEPA, and that we are protective of our workers and the community.

Ele is vigilant in ensuring that our facility has, and continues to, operate well within compliance of federal, state, and local regulations. Our core values are predicated on ensuring the continued health and safety of our workers, our community, and the environment, and these values guide every facet of our business.

We are currently proactively working with the USEPA to conduct additional testing that will provide further assurances for the local community. We are doing this in full cooperation and coordination with local officials and federal representatives, including U.S. Congressman Daniel Lipinski.
