Tradition and innovation: LIXIL’s History

LIXIL was formed by a merger of five of Japan’s most successful building material and equipment manufacturing companies in 2011.

One of the companies included in the merger was INAX, a prestigious Japanese building company with its own long history. In 1919, the founders of what was to become INAX provided technical advice during the construction of the famous Tokyo Imperial Hotel main building. The predecessor to INAX, Ina Seito Co. Ltd. was then established in 1924.

Then, in 1947 Sunwave began the manufacture of kitchens. In 1956, the world’s first mass-produced deep-drawn stainless steel sink was met with great acclaim.

In 1967, INAX launched the first-ever Japanese shower toilet. In 2009, American Standard Asia Pacific became a subsidiary of INAX.

Five companies, each a powerhouse with their own strengths and technology, came together in 2011 to establish LIXIL Corporation.

Two years later, in 2013, American Standard Brands which was established 19th century, became a subsidiary of LIXIL. The next year, international bathroom and water technology leader GROHE became an associated company. Now a global corporation, LIXIL supports people all over the world with its home improvement products.

Making better homes a reality: LIXIL Water Technology 

Functionality is important. But LIXIL goes one step further. We produce relaxing and tranquil bathrooms, kitchens that unleash creativity and toilets that are clean and comfortable.

Our water technology is designed to reduce overall water consumption without relinquishing any comfort or convenience.

The peak of hygiene and comfort. Introducing the state-of-the-art design integrated shower toilet, SATIS G.

The revolutionary Aqua Ceramic base developed exclusively by INAX creates a smooth, stain-resistant surface that prevents unsightly hard water build-up. Stubborn grime washes away with a simple flush, leaving a clean, white shine.

Customer reviews praise the SATIS G for its cleanliness and easy upkeep – toilet cleaning is not needed as often, and stubborn grime has become a thing of the past.
