In particular, cooperation in sales of products for new homes and renovation. as well as joint development of energy saving window products was done.

Further expansion of synergy effects had constantly been the topic between the two companies. At the meeting held between JSGC and Kawashima in March 2011, the companies recognized that Kawashima must be able to make a greater use of the JSGC infrastructures and therefore need stronger alliance.

In particular, Kashima will sell its products using JSGC's nationwide sales channels including L1XIL showrooms and overseas business operating sites. JSGC will also sell its products through Kawashima sales channel to further expand sales as well as reduce cost by joint distribution and by the management of indirect costs.

JSGC believes that it will be able to strengthen the group's business portfolio and to be able to develop business swiftly by Kawashima becoming a wholly owned subsidiary.

Kawashima has long history and experience in interior business especially in interior fabrics and traditional clothing and artistic textiles, however, the company decided to become a wholly owned subsidiary of JSGC to increase strategic unity with the Group in order to grow its business. As a result, Kawashima believes that it will be able to develop business stably and that it would be able to increase overall corporate value.
