PTHC was founded in 1961 under the name of National Thai Co., Ltd. (NTC) as Panasonic's first overseas manufacturing site established after World War II. Production of dry-cell batteries began the following year, and NTC has since expanded to cover a wide range of products including televisions and car audio equipment. Its factories became independent branch companies between 1996 and 1998, and NTC was renamed Panasonic (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in 2004.
PTHC currently serves as the central hub of the Panasonic subsidiaries in Thailand. As a holding company for six manufacturing subsidiaries with a total work force of around 6,300 employees, PTHC has been contributing to social development of the country.

The Panasonic Group has been striving to become the No.1 Green Innovation Company in the Electronics Industry by 2018, the 100th anniversary of its founding. To this end, Panasonic is undergoing a transformation to be a globally-oriented company, filled with significant growth potential, under its Green Transformation 2012 (GT12) management plan covering three years through March 2013.
