Panasonic: 100 years of innovation

Panasonic was founded in 1918 by Konosuke Matsushita. That year, Panasonic introduced an improved attachment plug. Next was a double cluster socket that made it possible to power lights and appliances from a single source. The ideas may have appeared small, but the product provided a new dimension of comfort and opportunities by being able to iron a shirt while having the light on. Since Panasonic’s launch 100 years ago, the company has constantly evolved to its current global scale with many milestones worth mentioning.

We are now celebrating our 100th anniversary, thanks in large part to all of your support.

At Panasonic, we will continue to challenge ourselves, with unchanged hearts, as we aspire to “A Better Life, A Better World”.
