Kansas City continues to add local makers and manufacturers, and Morgan Tap & Basin, 21983 W. 83rd St., is sure to lead the list of shiny newcomers. The company, which combines founders Nathan Davis’s expertise in manufacturing and Michelle Zak’s marketing savvy, is launching a collection of stainless-steel sinks and faucets. Handmade from a heavier gauge metal than industry standard (14 gauge of 316 stainless steel for those who need to know) the sinks’ subtly rounded corners are easier to clean than a sharp corner and the offset drain makes way for better storage in the cabinet below.
The company is launching with three standard sizes, but has larger sinks with custom accessories in development. Faucets will follow, but the pair is not in a rush.
“We want to make sure that everything we sell is the quality we want it to be,” says Davis.
