Japanese multinational electronics firm Panasonic eyes to open new service centres in Myanmar as part of its expanding plan in the fast-growing Southeast Asian country.
The expansion will be completed with the introduction of a brand new air conditioner for local buyers. Panasonic launched its new residential and partly commercial-use air conditioner, Mini FSV VRF, at an air conditioner exhibition held in Yangon on February 21st. The electronics giant will set up three more service centres in central Myanmar and one in the country’s lower region to further its after-sales customer care for Myanmar users, according to Hisakazu Maeda, chief representative of the Panasonic Myanmar, which is under the banner of Singapore-based Panasonic Asia Pacific Ltd. The firm has already stretched out 11 service centres throughout Myanmar, of which two centres are with integrated showrooms.
Panasonic opened its first integrated showroom in Myanmar in March 2015, located in Yangon. A second integrated showroom followed in April 2015 in Mandalay. The electronics powerhouse assisted Myanmar in its efforts to provide the rural areas with more power supply by donating 2,400 solar lanterns to government and civil society organisations in the country through the company’s global aid project.
