About Panasonic

A better life, a better world

Panasonic is committed to creating a better life and a better world, continuously contributing to the evolution of society and to the happiness of people around the globe.

The times have changed. Our intentions have not.

It all began 100 years ago. Panasonic’s history started from the thought “We wish we could use lights and appliances at the same time.” And now, our principle of adding a little more brightness to our lives remains unchanged. As our second century dawns, we’re ready.

Panasonic was founded in 1918 by Konosuke Matsushita. That year,Panasonic introduced an improved attachment plug, which allowed people to power an electrical appliance from a light socket. Next was a double cluster socket that made it possible to power lights and appliances from a single source. Our principles of making life ever more comfortable originated from these small ideas.

Panasonic’s 100th anniversary is upon us. To address the changing times, we continue to develop the products of the future worldwide, always cherishing the principles our founder defined for us one century ago.

A century of reliability

Since our founding in 1918, Panasonic has been dedicated to improving people’s lives and to helping society progress. We are now celebrating our 100th anniversary, thanks to all of our customers’ support. At Panasonic, we will continue to challenge ourselves, with unchanged hearts, as we aspire to “A Better Life, A Better World”.

Bring Magic Alive

Batteries are perceived as little magical instruments that give power to different appliances. With its technical expertise, Panasonic wants to make the magic tangible.That’s why we have chosen the theme “Bring Magic Alive” for the 100 Years Anniversary campaign of Panasonic Batteries. To highlight the magic even more, Panasonic Energy Europe is proud to announce the official partnership with Cirque du Soleil®.
