Sankindo (三金堂) was allegedly an associated company of Face – perhaps it was a development subsidiary? The name stops appearing sometime in 1992 — maybe it was merged into Face? (In fact, 1992's Quiz Gekiretsu Scramble refers to the "Face Development Staff." Also worth considering: Designer Kenji Ishizaki's resume refers to Face, not Sankindo.)
