Leader, Transportation

American Standard

This is a Contract position in Fort Worth, TX posted February 2, 2023.

About Us: LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that make better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.

A better home is made up of surprisingly simple things – showers and faucets to experience water in new ways; kitchens that unleash creativity; toilets that provide cleanliness and comfort; doors and windows that connect you with the world outside; interiors and exteriors that bring spaces to life; baths to escape in after a long day.

Born in 2011 through a merger of five of Japan’s most successful building materials and housing companies, we draw on our Japanese heritage to create world-leading technology and innovate to make high quality products that transform homes.

Today, we’re a global enterprise with approximately 55,000 employees in more than 150 countries worldwide, having expanded internationally by acquiring some of the most trusted names in our industry, including GROHE and American Standard.

But the LIXIL difference isn’t what we do or where we do it, it is how we do it.

We combine meaningful design, an entrepreneurial spirit, a dedication to improving accessibility for all, and responsible business growth to make things that matter – to people, to communities, and to the world we live in.

We are proud that our products touch the lives of more than a billion people every day but believe we have the potential to do so much more.
