Kingston Technology Company Profile

Kingston Technology Company, Inc is an independent American corporation involved in the development, manufacturing and selling of memory products.  If a device or piece of equipment requires memory, Kingston more than likely supplies it.  Its memory products include:  USB flash drives, card adapters, SD cards, CF cards, server memory, printer memory, audio player memory and phone memory.

Kingston TechnologyFounded by Taiwanese immigrants John Tu and David Sun in 1987, the company’s initial focus began on SIMMs (Single In-Line Memory Modules).  In 1992, Kingston was ranked the fastest growing American company by Inc Magazine.  One year later, the company expanded to storage products. 

In 1996, the founders sold 80 percent of Kingston to Japan’s Softbank for $1.5 billion and generously shared the proceeds with its 550 workers in the form of bonuses that averaged $130,000.  From there, the company tripled its sales by 2007.

By 2010, Kingston’s annual revenue calculates to more than $4 billion.  It is ranked as the global leader in memory manufacturing with more than 40 percent of the world’s third party memory market share.  Today the company employs approximately 4,000 people worldwide.

Kingston’s drives are renowned for their quality and performance.  They come in file capacities ranging from 1 GB to the world’s current top consumer capacity at 256 GB.  They are generally designed with fairly standard casings that are sometimes punctuated by bright colors.  The primary flash drive functions Kingston focuses on include high capacity, high speed, personal security and encryption.
