The new company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Panasonic Electric Works Vossloh-Schwabe GmbH (PEWVS) that manufactures and sells lighting devices.

Panasonic Electric Works, Japan acquired PEWVS to make the company a subsidiary in 2002. The capital of the new company is EUR 1 million. Establishment of the new company is intended to enhance production capabilities of electronic ballast production in the Republic of Serbia.

This is the first time the Panasonic Group has launched a manufacturing facility in the Republic of Serbia. In Europe, ErP Energy-Related Products Directive is expected to drive the shift in demand from incandescent lamps to fluorescent lamps and LEDs, thereby increasingly requiring electronic control of lighting devices.

an effort to further expand the energy-efficient lighting devices business in Europe.
