Cape Times - - COMPANIES - Booysen – Joseph

PANA­SONIC plans to dou­ble its busi­ness in South Africa over the next two years, ac­cord­ing to the Ja­panese multi­na­tional elec­tron­ics com­pany. Pana­sonic launched the new head­quar­ters of Pana­sonic South Africa in Cen­tury City, Cape Town, yes­ter­day. Pana­sonic South Africa is a sub­sidiary of the Ja­panese com­pany Pana­sonic Cor­po­ra­tion. Man­ag­ing direc­tor of Pana­sonic South Africa, Hidetoshi Kaneko, said: “We de­cided to move to the West­ern Cape be­cause of the growth in our cus­tomer base in this re­gion and the ac­cess to other large com­pa­nies lo­cated in the Cape. We are also en­cour­aged by its strong skills-pipe­line.” Pana­sonic South Africa was now in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether it would be vi­able to move its en­tire African head­quar­ters to the Cape, cur­rently lo­cated in Dubai, he said. The new Cen­tury City-based fa­cil­ity has es­tab­lished a Life Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre, open to the pub­lic.
