We get it – most people don’t start a company thinking it’s going to become an internationally-recognized brand. They might hope for that? But it’s nowhere near guaranteed. So when Japanese electronic producer Matsushita Electric Industrial Corporation was founded in 1935, the name was probably fine. After all, they were an electric industrial corporation – it’s right there in the name! However, that name is a bit long for branding, so it was officially changed to Panasonic in 2008. Can’t believe it took them that long, for real.
