LIXIL Public Statement about KBIS 2021
August 18, 2020
After careful consideration, LIXIL will not be participating in the 2021 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS).
This decision has not been made lightly. However, as a global leader in sanitation and hygiene, this pandemic has clearly shown us that protecting the health, well-being and safety of our employees, customers and consumers must influence every decision that we make. This will always be a priority.
We have taken a similar approach by withdrawing from global industry conferences such as ISH and KBC.
The pandemic has taught us that consumers demand safety and comfort in a changing uncertain world, so we are inspired to introduce our new innovative products with a focus on virtual, tailored experiences, which reflect how we now work and live.
At LIXIL, we continue to challenge ourselves to be more innovative and work differently to recognize the opportunities through this crisis.
LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve everyday, real-life challenges, making better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere. Drawing on our Japanese heritage, we create world-leading technology and innovate to make high quality products that transform homes. But the LIXIL difference is how we do this; through meaningful design, an entrepreneurial spirit, a dedication to improving accessibility for all, and responsible business growth. Our approach comes to life through industry leading brands, including INAX, GROHE, American Standard, and TOSTEM. Approximately 75,000 colleagues operating in more than 150 countries are proud to make products that touch the lives of more than a billion people every day. LIXIL Group Corporation (TSE Code: 5938) is the listed holding company for LIXIL’s portfolio of businesses.
