    HERITAGE & INSPIRATION
  • Rollover text:
    Though the present day LIXIL came into existence only in 2010, its heritage can be traced back to 1923, to the outskirts of Tokyo, when Kenjiro Ushioda laid the seeds of TOSTEM. Together with his fellow-visionaries Chozaburo Ina (founder of INAX), Katsuro Shibasaki (co-founder of Sunwave Industries) and Hidenori Sugimoto (founder of TOEX), these four fathers ushered in an era of innovation and laid down the principles that would make LIXIL one of the most respected names in the building industry.
