Manufacturing

Panasonic Avionics’ innovative approach to manufacturing incorporates best practices from the consumer electronics, inflight entertainment and communications (IFEC), and avionics industries, to develop and implement processes and procedures that improve the durability, extend the reliability, and increase the lifecycle of our products. As a member of the Panasonic Corporation family of companies, we are able to leverage a number of industry-leading Panasonic patents and the entire company’s supply chain. Maintaining complete control over our manufacturing resources enables us to manage costs, speed time to market and deliver the highest quality IFEC products and solutions.

Panasonic Avionics has global manufacturing capabilities. With more than 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space dedicated to IFEC within Panasonic Corporation’s enormous production facility in Osaka, Japan, we provide a turnkey solution that is backed by a supply chain that benefits from significant vertical integration, and takes advantage of the Panasonic Manufacturing Innovations group, which invests heavily in world-class production techniques, tools, and processes.
