Sanyo Electric Co - A Panasonic Subsidiary Recognized Globally as a Trusted Source for Consumer Electronics, Dry Batteries, and Cell Phones

Know More About Sanyo Electric Co. : Sanyo Electric Co. is a global electronics company that is listed on the Fortune Global 500. In The name literally means three oceans, which denotes the vision of the company to conduct global business across the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. 2009, Sanyo was acquired by Panasonic Corporation, a household name, for a total of $4.5 billion and an initial 50.2% share of the company.

The subsequent year, Panasonic acquired the remaining shares of the company. Sanyo is currently a subsidiary of Panasonic and is publicly traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The company was founded in 1951 and today has headquarters in Osaka, Japan and Watford, United Kingdom. It specializes and is most known for consumer electronics, dry batteries, and cell phones.
