Sojitz GMC Corporation (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Kazuhiko Tsutsui), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sojitz Corporation that handles consumer goods, begins selling TITAN Backstage, new design from the TITAN series of luggage created by German manufacturer Thomas Wagner GmbH.

TITAN luggage products have been available in Japan since 2005 and have been extremely well received by customers. The key features of TITAN luggage are its surprising light weight and durability. The bodies are made from polycarbonate, a material with outstanding shock resistance that is also used in the helmets of astronauts.

The new Backstage design features straight vertical and horizontal ribs at right angles and a metallic look that can easily be mistaken for aluminum. A garment bag for packing suits is included, making organization and packing extremely easy. TSA combination locks provide excellent anti-theft performance.

TITAN products have established a strong reputation for their quality and won the grand prize in the luggage category from test magazine, a German national goods evaluation publication. In addition to their high quality, TITAN products have gained praise for their practicality and been adopted as the official luggage provided to cabin crew by Lufthansa German Airlines. Sojitz GMC plans to increase sales of TITAN luggage products in Japan by expanding the product lineup.
