In 1987, Kingston entered the memory market
with a single product. Founders John Tu and David Sun addressed a severe shortage of surface-mount memory chips with a memory module that would serve to redefine industry standards for years to come.
Kingston has grown
to be the world's largest independent manufacturer of memory enhancement products. Founded in 1987 by John Tu and David Sun, Kingston has grown from offering a single in-line memory module into an international company with over 2,000 products that support over 20,000 systems with sales exceeding $6.5 billion in 2010.
Combining one of the most
extensive and stringent testing processes in the memory industry, an exceptional free tech support centre and a consistent roll-out of innovative technologies, Kingston Technology has continually set industry standards of quality and reliability throughout its history.
Kingston has grown to be the world's
largest independent manufacturer of memory products. With global headquarters in Fountain Valley, California, Kingston employs more than 4,000 people worldwide.
Reliability is the cornerstone of the
Kingston product strategy. It has played a key role in maintaining the long-term relationships developed over the years with customers. Kingston remains committed to exceeding industry standards with every new development while maintaining the signature reliability of its products.
Kingston serves an international
network of distributors, resellers, retailers and OEM customers on six continents. The company also provides contract manufacturing and supply chain management services for semiconductor manufacturers and system OEMs.
Kingston is extremely careful
to manufacture its products within specification. In fact, Kingston is a member of the JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) Solid State Technology Association, and also holds a Vice Chairman seat on the JEDEC board. JEDEC has been the foremost standards development organisation for the semiconductor industry since 1958. Kingston is one of the 300 companies that work closely together developing standards to meet industry and user needs.
Kingston has developed
long-term relationships with the leading DRAM manufacturers. Our DRAM chips are purchased directly from these manufacturers, which include Elpida, Hynix, Infineon, Renesas, Samsung, Toshiba and others. The components are shipped directly from the manufacturer's facility to Kingston's facility, minimising handling and exposure to damage.
All DRAM chips delivered to Kingston
are scrutinised to ensure that only premium, qualified and tested DRAM is accepted. As a leading DRAM customer, Kingston receives excellent quality and availability of DRAM chips. This availability allows Kingston to offer a wide variety of memory modules from those for legacy systems to the latest systems.
Kingston takes pride in its proactive
role in verifying the quality and reliability of the components used in Kingston products. Kingston memory is designed and built with components that are purchased from qualified suppliers that meet Kingston's high quality standards. Kingston has been ISO 9001 certified since 1994. Kingston has not only obtained this high standard certification, but it has maintained and improved its processes to adapt to the demanding memory industry.
