Through the acquisition, Sankyo expects to gain an opportunity to enter into business with South Korean home appliance manufacturers that have a strong presence in emerging economies, and seeks to expand sales of its rich product line-up. Specifically, Sankyo aims to increase sales by collaborating with SCD in distributing units for home appliances (excluding refrigerators), housing and facility equipment, and bathroom products to South Korean home appliance manufacturers.

In addition, Sankyo expects to be able to enhance its product line-up by adding SCD's line-up of low-cost products for emerging economies, and seeks to sell SCD products globally through Sankyo's sales channels, contributing to the Nidec group's further growth.
