Write a review of Panasonic

Panasonic manufactures a variety of air conditioners and heat pumps, as well as air purification products and water heaters. Headquartered in Osaka, Japan, the company also has a U.S. branch, Panasonic Corp. of North America, in New Jersey. It trades on the New York stock exchange as PX.

Panasonic projects sales of approximately $71 billion USD in 2014. The company is pursuing the concept "A Better Life, A Better World" while remaining focused on developing eco-conscious products.

Corporate History

Beginning with a design for an improved light socket, Konosuke Matsushita founded his company in 1894 with only three employees in a two-story house. In 1918, the company known today as Panasonic was born, and in 1956 began manufacturing home appliances, with the launch of its "home coolers" following two years later. A branch in the United States was founded in 1959 as the Matsushita Electric Corp. of America and, in 2008, became known as the Panasonic Corp. of North America.
