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

Toward “A Better Life, A Better World”
– Panasonic’s Endeavors for the Next 100 Years

In 2018, the Panasonic Corporation is celebrating its centennial anniversary. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of our customers, business partners, and many others who have supported us throughout our long history.

“Make contributions to the progress of society and the well-being of people through our business activities” has been our underlying corporate philosophy over the past 100 years. Moving into our second century, we stand firmly behind this philosophy and will continue making new contributions by always staying close to our customers’ lives.

The environment in which we work is changing rapidly and drastically. The consumers’ needs are becoming ever more complex and diverse, while social issues, such as the environment, the aging population, and labor shortages, also vary among the worlds’ countries and regions. In this constantly evolving world, offering “tangible” products, as we have done in the past, is not enough. We are challenging ourselves to open new frontiers, in “intangible” areas such as energy and services.

Listening to the needs of our customers is our top priority. We work hard to improve our engineering and manufacturing capabilities and to commit ourselves to the pursuit of better lives for people. That is exactly how we at Panasonic aspire to bring “A Better Life, A Better World” to each and every customer.

We are taking a new step forward into our next century. Please join us in our endeavors as we continue to advance toward the future.

May 2018
