Building materials and housing equipment companies Tostem, Inax, Shin Nikkei, Sun Wave (excluding the manufacturing division) and Toyo Exterior merged in April 2011 to launch a new company, LIXIL Corporation.
LIXIL comes from the combination of the words "living" and "life," referring to the JS Group, which embraced the five companies under its umbrella. The name also symbolizes the comprehensive strengths that LIXIL, as a group, can offer. What can we do to improve people's lifestyles? What new values can we offer? LIXIL Corporation is more than the sum of its parts; the merger of operating companies produces real synergy. Integrating individual strengths into one, the fresh organization is set to embark on a new challenge to create the future.
INAX is a brand of LIXIL which offers sanitary ware products in North America.
