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.

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

Creating an Ideal Society and Lifestyles Based on the Unchanging Philosophy

As set out in the Basic Management Objective announced by the company's founder Konosuke Matsushita, the Panasonic Group has kept its public pledge of making contributions to the progress and development of society and the well-being of people worldwide through our business activities over a long period of time.

Up to the present, we have inherited this philosophy as the Panasonic Group's unchanging raison d'être even as society has evolved over time. We aim to contribute to further social development by globally offering convenient, safe, and comfortable lifestyles in a broad range of areas. Our philosophy will never change.

Moreover, through the promotion of fully autonomous management with the transition to an operating company system under a holding company, we will more precisely identify social issues, which each of our broad range of businesses must address, and more swiftly improve our operations and capability to create value.

We commit ourselves to making further contributions toward creating an ideal society and lifestyles while solving global social issues, including the conservation of the global environment. This challenge will be met by more rapidly delivering excellent products and services to many more customers.

All of us will strive to make Panasonic a valuable corporation and brand, always considered indispensable by society.

We deeply appreciate your support as we move forward.
