As part of a strategic partnership, the profine Group has developed a country-specific sliding system together with the Japanese leader in water and housing products, which will be marketed there from August 2021.

The German system house is thus continuing its international expansion course in one of the world's largest growth regions.

When looking for a premium partner from Europe, LIXIL made a conscious decision in favor of profine with their Kömmerling brand. According to information from the leading Asian player, in addition to Kömmerling's high level of recognition worldwide, the quality and the well thought-out system concept, which was developed precisely to meet the customer's market requirements, were decisive.

The development process was characterized by demanding requirements. The result is a very specific sliding window system with a high percentage of recycling material and an excellent thermal insulation.

The decision was made in favor of this system because LIXIL has, just like Kömmerling, firmly anchored the goal of circular economy in its development strategy and consistently relies on the promotion of innovative products with a view to their potential for CO2 reduction.

“It's a win-win situation. The cooperation with LIXIL opens up new potential for us to open up new markets and our partner benefits from our know-how in the development of energy-efficient window systems. We are very proud to be able to take this long-term path together with such a large and internationally renowned player”, said Dr. Peter Mrosik, owner and CEO of the profine Group.
