    Default LIXIL (INAX parent) acquires American Standard Brands

    Should be interesting to watch. Will we see INAX products at the box stores next to the Cadets and Champions?

    They have been wanting to get into the US for a long time. It's been about 2 years since they opened their INAX showroom in New York City, and I guess they figured this was a way to increase penetration other than organically.

    It will be interesting to see what they do about AS's quality control. I can't imagine that Japanese managers would do anything other than freak out if they saw what AS is willing to sell to the public. Here's hoping that they're not looking at this as a passive investment.

    The smart move would be to compliment each companies products. It just means they now have a name brand to introduce they toilet line to. Especially when they brought at a bargain.
