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

Aiming to overcome global-scale difficulties

First of all, I would like to express my most sincere condolences to the families and friends of all those who have passed away due to COVID-19, as well as express my heartfelt wishes of recovery for those who are now suffering from the disease. We at Panasonic truly hope that all people return to safe and secure lives as soon as possible, and, through our business and social activities, we are firmly resolved to make our utmost efforts to fulfil our responsibilities as a public entity of society.

The difficulties we face worldwide today will eventually change our society and daily life in a drastic manner. For instance, the restrictions on activities imposed by many countries are accelerating the dissemination of various digital technologies into our homes and offices, which has compelled us to drastically change our values. Moreover, how to maintain a good physical and mental condition in everyday life will become a greater challenge than ever before.

Continuously addressing these changes while still making contributions to society and people’s lives: This is the mission Panasonic must pursue, as a company that has stayed close to people’s lives and worked to solve social problems over the past 100 years. By leveraging our cutting-edge technologies, we at Panasonic will continue to take up a variety of challenges with the aim of helping people to live healthier lives in the way most suitable for each individual, as well as helping to solve a variety of social issues. It is my firm belief that, through these endeavors, Panasonic will continue to create new contributions to people around the world, even after the COVID-19 outbreak abates.

I have no doubt that the world has the ability to eventually overcome the COVID-19 crisis.

Panasonic will walk alongside society in overcoming the current difficulties, and, always staying close to people’s lives, it will continue to work toward “A Better Life, A Better World” by taking on new challenges toward offering each individual customer his or her own optimal, comfortable life.

So I would like to ask for your continued support and patronage of Panasonic.
