Message from the CEO

Welcome to Panasonic Entertainment & Communication Co., Ltd.

On April 1, 2022, when the Panasonic Group transitioned to an operating company system, our company was established as a new operating company based on the former Smart Life Network Business Division by integrating and restructuring the organizations necessary to further enhance our contribution to society.

Our mission is to offer people new emotion and relaxation through our entertainment and communication solutions. In order to fulfill this mission, we will act professionally to continuously recreate the future by connecting people as stated in our vision.

We believe that our day-to-day lives can be more fulfilling and colorful as we enjoy a variety of emotional moments through exciting and stimulating experiences as well as heart-warming human interactions. Think about an ordinary day. From the time you wake up in the morning until you go to bed at night, your day consists of a series of scenes. We believe that we can make our lives even richer by valuing each of these moments and increasing emotion and relaxation through human interactions. Based on this concept, we will all work together to create valuable time.

We are committed to continuously refine our accumulated technology as well as our manufacturing and operational capabilities through tireless daily improvements, and pursuing higher goals to achieve perfection so that we can offer products and services to enrich our customers' lives.

We will provide emotion and relaxation to our customers through in-depth consideration of what makes each of them happy and by maximizing the power of entertainment and communication. At the same time, we will contribute to reducing CO2 emissions and solving environmental issues through our business activities with more efficient manufacturing processes, development of outstanding energy-saving products, and adoption of eco-friendly materials.

We look forward to your continued support.
