Since 1996, from our purpose-built factory in Kobe, Japan, we've committed ourselves completely to setting the standard in rugged laptops and tablets, refusing to compromise on the quality of our technology.

To guarantee you the ultimate in rugged mobility, and to maintain our position as Europe’s undisputed market leader, we apply key principles to everything we do.

Mobility is complex. TOUGHBOOK gives you the perfect balance.

To perform at their best, critical front-line workers require a complex blend of mobile hardware, software and services. TOUGHBOOK achieves a perfect mobile balance of rugged capability, long battery life, connectivity, ergonomic design, security and portability, always helping you work smarter, not harder.

Some devices become rugged late in life. TOUGHBOOK is born that way.

For more than a quarter of a century, we’ve been developing notebooks, tablets and handhelds that are rugged from the inside out. Based on a deep understanding of what first responders need, and Panasonic’s electronic engineering experience, every TOUGHBOOK has our trademark rugged technology at the heart of its DNA.

Because your challenges are the toughest, our testing is the same.

It’s no accident that TOUGHBOOK has the lowest failure rates in the market. We’ve never underestimated the extreme demands of mobile working. Tested to military standards (MIL-STD) and industry guidelines, our technology is resistant to drops and shock, water, vibration, extreme temperatures, electromagnetic interference and much more.

We lead the world in rugged technology. But your voice guides our way.

TOUGHBOOK has a unique relationship with its customers. Their voice has a direct influence on the design decisions we make, helping us evolve the innovative rugged technology that is our hallmark. By listening to them, we’ve equipped our rugged notebooks and tablets with durable, portable, mobile technology that overcomes the challenges field workers encounter in their professional lives.

To guarantee constant connectivity. We leave nothing to chance.

We’re confident that the connectivity of our rugged devices is unmatched in the industry. Why? Because we design and test our antennae to the highest possible standards in our own anechoic and radiation measurement facility in Kobe, Japan.

"The Panasonic device portfolio lets us equip every unit with mobile devices that meet all of our requirements."

When battery life means others give up, TOUGHBOOK users are just getting started.

TOUGHBOOK devices are equipped with the safest batteries, delivering the longest lifetime and run time, in the industry. How? We design and produce our own batteries, rather than relying on others for their performance and quality.

To work in a rugged world, you need a world of rugged solutions.

No TOUGHBOOK – or TOUGHBOOK user – works alone. Every device is backed by an eco-system of rugged docks, mounts and accessories, and a complete range of software and professional services, that maximise the performance and value of our specialist technology.

By focusing on the future. TOUGHBOOK gives you more today.

You don’t succeed for three decades in the rugged world without constantly focusing on what comes next. Thanks to modular design and configuration flexibility, our devices are inherently upgradeable and future-proofed, and through sustainability initiatives such as TOUGHBOOK Revive and Panasonic Green ImpACT, we’re minimising our impact on tomorrow.

"We have been able to go beyond Mobile Device Management systems to transform IT support from reacting to problems, to being proactive and preventing issues before they affect vital communication in the field."

Wherever you work, whenever you need us, we’ll be right by your side.

Market-leading technology deserves world-class service. From fast turnaround repairs to technical consultancy and local, multi-lingual engineers, we provide on-the-ground answers to your specific issues. Whether pre- or post-sales, including market-leading warranty options, you receive the customer support you need to stay productive, no matter where you are or how tough the challenge.
