Sanyo joins Panasonic but retains its brand identity

Company spokesperson says distribution channels and identity will remain intact following acquisition


As of Dec. 21, 2009, CCTV solutions manufacturer Sanyo officially became a Panasonic company, according to Aaron Fowles, corporate communications representative for Sanyo North America Corporation.

Fowles added that Sanyo’s Consumer Solutions Group, to which the Sanyo security products division belongs, will continue to business under the Sanyo name.

“We will continue to offer the same high-quality, innovative products in the security market as we have in the past,” he said. “Our distribution channels are expected to remain intact so dealers can continue to contact the same representatives and distributors for Sanyo security products.”
