How an electric shaver is born

Introducing the product journey of a Maxell Izumi shaver.

When a shaver is being developed, the design characteristics of size, weight, color are decided. The new product is designed to match our users' demands. Most shavers are hand-sized, and weigh about 200g. Most shavers are made of plastic, stainless steel, nickel, and other materials.

Components are produced by various suppliers, and cutter parts are transported, from Japan to China, for assembly. Blade performance and durability is tested, as is the packaging. The shave quality is the most important function.

The packaging is designed to protect the contents during transportation. After the shavers have been assembled and packed, they are transported, by sea or air, to warehouses around the world.

The shavers are sold in retail outlets worldwide, where customer services including repairs, refunds, and replacements are provided.
