Matsu****a Electric Officially Becomes Panasonic Corporation
 
Effective today, October 1, 2008, Matsu****a Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. has become Panasonic Corporation and its ticker symbol on the New York Stock Exchange has been changed to PC from MC.

The name change also took effect for some of the group companies that used the names Matsu****a or National. Along with the name change, Panasonic is working on the brand changeover from National to Panasonic in Japan, aiming to complete by the end of March 2010.

When it was first established in 1918 the company was known as Matsu****a Electric Housewares Manufacturing Works, which was changed to Matsu****a Electric Manufacturing Works in 1929. The company used the name Matsu****a Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. after its incorporation as a joint stock corporation in 1935. While the company used the National and Panasonic brand names over a long period, it decided in 2003 to position Panasonic as its global brand with the brand slogan "Panasonic ideas for life."

"With this company name change and brand unification, the company has renewed its commitment to bringing the achievements accumulated through the three different names of Matsu****a, National, and Panasonic under the one single name of Panasonic to enhance its brand value," Panasonic said in a statement.

Hey does your latin quote in your sig say something like, "prepare for war?"

pacem is peace, bellum is war, I'm just trying to remember framents of my 2-year latin studies.

Something "who decides peace, prepare for war"
