The global building industry is on the rise as construction activity across multiple sectors recovers and economists predict a better outlook. Behind the scenes, LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve every-day, real-life challenges.
For over 100 years, the successful brands that are part of LIXIL have combined the best of the past with a vision for the future. The company — dedicated to meaningful design, an entrepreneurial spirit, improving accessibility for all and responsible business growth — was born in 2011 through a merger of 5 of Japan’s most successful building materials and housing companies, TOSTEM, INAX, Shin Nikkei, Sunwave and TOEX. Today, the American Standard brand, also falls under the LIXIL umbrella.
The company employs over 70,000, operates in over 150 countries and makes products— including interior and exterior solutions for all types of living spaces — that touch the daily lives of more than 1 billion people.
