Toyota Industries to Acquire Cascade Corporation

The New York Times reports Toyota Industries will acquire Cascade Corporation exit disclaimer 

Plaisance Advisors’ Comment: As we mentioned in a previous posting, Japanese companies are well positioned and motivated to make acquisitions around the world, especially in the US.  Toyota Industries’ (the car maker Toyota Motors was spun off from Toyota Industries 80 years ago) announced acquisition of Cascade appears to be an example of this trend that we predict will continue to accelerate.
