Foundation

Panasonic New Zealand is part of Panasonic Corporation, known as the Matsushita Group until October 2008. Matsushita first entered the New Zealand market in 1962, supplying refrigerator parts to Fisher & Paykel. In 1971, a sales agreement between Matsushita and Fisher & Paykel saw the introduction of National and Panasonic electronic products to the New Zealand market, with all products rebranded Panasonic in 1987. Today, Panasonic New Zealand has 115 employees across Christchurch, Wellington and its headquarters in Auckland, and continues to be part of the fabric of New Zealand.

Message from the Managing Director of Panasonic New Zealand

Managing Director

Loved by New Zealand households and businesses for almost a century, Panasonic’s diverse range of products, systems, and services are designed to benefit the lives of New Zealanders.

We understand how products can impact people’s lives and this drives us to develop technology which is “clever made easy” and ensuring that your everyday life - at home, work, or on-the-go - is the best it can be.

Every year brings new demands and encourages market-leading product innovation, but the core values of Panasonic always remain the same. Reliability and trust are what Panasonic is all about and those are the kinds of qualities that people can always count on.

As a sponsor to a variety of local and national initiatives, and a dedicated member of the community, Panasonic has grown into the fabric of New Zealand.

Panasonic New Zealand has grown from a small subsidiary of Fisher & Paykel in 1972 to a large and independent brand, trusted and well known across the country. With offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, Panasonic New Zealand is well placed to provide all aspects of consumer and business services, and cater to the needs of its customers.

The Panasonic New Zealand Headquarters are located in a brand new energy efficient building in Auckland which centralises business systems, accommodates for the increased demand in warehouse space, and supports logistical operations.

There are now over 110 employees across all departments and segments of the business, working together as one to serve New Zealand and continue the mission of creating "A Better Life, A Better World".

Sincerely,
Stewart Fowler, Managing Director

Message from the President of Panasonic

Creating “a new Panasonic” which achieves
“A Better Life, A Better World”

Since the founding of our company in 1918, we have been carrying out all of our activities following our basic management philosophy, which commits us to making a contribution through our business operations to improving the lives of people around the world, and to the further progress of society. Always making “people” central to our activities, and thereby focusing on “people’s lives,” we will continue to provide better living for our customers. This is the unchanging commitment we at Panasonic have had over many years.

And what we are aiming for now is to keep on providing “better living” everywhere, meeting the needs of each individual customer. In a variety of spaces where our customers go about their lives, spaces ranging from inside the home, the office, the store, the automobile, and the airplane, as well as the town, we will provide not only single pieces of hardware, but also total solutions including software and services. We will pursue the concept of “A Better Life, A Better World,” meeting the needs of each individual customer.

To that end, we will leverage the strengths that we at Panasonic have long developed in our consumer electronics business, and the strengths of our business partners who have in-depth expertise in each space, and will work to combine these strengths pursuing “Cross-Value Innovation.” In this way, we will create new value, value that has never been seen before. This is the new and challenging task we are now addressing.

Going forward, as we continue to carry out these activities, we will aggressively move forward and become “a new Panasonic.”
All of us at Panasonic will strive hard moving in this direction.

April 2015
President, Panasonic Corporation
