Rolling Meadows, IL (May 28, 2014) – Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America announced today that it recorded double-digit growth in its fiscal year that ended March 31, 2014. In particular, it cited notable progress with Tier 1 suppliers, including a more than 200% increase in mid-market penetration and nearly 400% growth in refurbished machinery sales.
“By refining our infrastructure, the evolution of our “Any Mix Any Volume” market strategy, and the innovative hardware and software innovations, we accomplished tremendous growth in fiscal 2013,” stated M. Faisal Pandit, President of Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America.
This extended reach into the market contributed to doubling new customer accounts over the last year while research and collaboration yielded new innovations such as the AM100 placement machine, NPI-award-winning PanaCIM® Express (a self-contained MES deployment solution), and the newly released PanaCIM Maintenance with Augmented Reality. Additionally, customer service levels were elevated with the company’s implementation of the Project Management Office, a tool designed to make installations and technical service seamless “non-events”.
"Our growth in fiscal 2013 clearly proves Panasonic Factory Solutions has listened to and acted on what the market needed in order to offer total solutions aligning with the low volume high-mix market, as well as our Tier 1 manufacturers,” Mr. Pandit said.
