Panasonic Manufacturing Philippines Corporation (PMPC) is a manufacturer, importer and distributor of electronic, electrical, mechanical, electro-mechanical appliances, other types of machines, parts and components, battery and related products bearing the brand name "Panasonic". Founded in 1967, PMPC is the first Filipino-Japanese joint venture operation in the area of consumer electronics in the country.
PMPC's history dates back to the early '60s when Mr. Jesus V. del Rosario, fondly called "Mr. J" established the Distributors and Manufacturers Corporation (DMC), producing radios and radio phonos at the sala of his house along San Luis Street in Pasay City with only a handful of workers. After a year, DMC's manufacturing department was made a separate company and was named Festival Manufacturing Corporation (FMC). Consequently, FMC changed to Precision Electronics Corporation (PEC) in 1965 to signify its no nonsense determination to produce products by ways no less than precision manufacturing.
The name PEC remained even after the joint venture between PEC and Matsushita Electric Co. Ltd. of Japan (MEI) was formalized in 1967. On the occasion of the company's 25th Anniversary in 1992, the name Matsushita Electric Philippines Corporation (MEPCO) was adopted.
In October 2003, PMPC adopted the single-brand strategy of its mother company, MEI, and stopped using "National" brand, as Panasonic became the unified global brand. Following the success of the brand unification, Matsushita Group continued to solidify its directions and vision towards a new era, one of which was harmonizing the corporate name and brand of Matsushita companies outside Japan. Along with this, MEPCO officially changed its corporate name to Panasonic Manufacturing Philippines Corporation (PMPC) effective April 1, 2005.
Under the new corporate name, the company continued to reinforce its operation and position Panasonic as an aggressive and competitive manufacturing company that is looking forward to the future with confidence, and focusing its efforts and resources in serving both the customers and society.
As one of the leaders in the industry, PMPC continues to establish many "firsts" in the appliance industry. The company, for instance, is the first local manufacturer to introduce non-mercury-added batteries and non-CFC refrigerators in the local market. It is likewise the first local appliance-manufacturing firm to earn ISO 9002 certification for all its factories. Being a member of the Matsushita Group of companies worldwide, PMPC's operation is guided by a common set of principles that underscores its responsibility to contribute to the progress and development of society and humanity. As a manifestation of its commitment, PMPC is the first company among appliance manufacturers to obtain ISO 14001 for its manufacturing plants located in Taytay, Rizal and Sta. Rosa, Laguna. In ensuring customer satisfaction, the company has continued to invest in the most modern production and product development facilities in its production lines.
At present, the company manufactures and distributes a wide range of electric and electronic products. Through its sales division, Panasonic Philippines (PPh), the company continually strives to expand its sales, service and distribution networks to make Panasonic products and service conveniently available to its consumers.
Since an enterprise uses society's resources - people, capital, real estate, community services - PMPC believes that it started out and remains indebted to society. Along this premise, the company recognizes that the primary role of its business is to serve society in return for the use of its resources and thus devotes its business activities to the progress and development of society and the well being of the people. This commitment serves as guidance for PMPC in carrying out its operation and corporate activities.
