From start-up to global manufacturer
Kingston continues to grow from the shared values of our employees, partners and customers.
Kingston Is With You
Our story began in 1987 when two engineers and friends, John Tu and David Sun, saw an opportunity in the technology space.
During a severe shortage of surface-mount memory chips, they designed a new type of memory module which fulfilled a demand for memory that would serve to redefine industry standards for years to come. What began as a garage start-up quickly grew into a technology powerhouse. While Kingston has long since outgrown that garage, the high standards of quality, reliability and customer service remain.
Today, Kingston is a leading global manufacturer of memory and storage solutions. Our customers include businesses of all sizes, tech consumers and a vast network of channel partners. We supply top-tier data centers, cloud providers and PC manufacturers, as well as companies developing the next trends in smart devices.
Our quality products and solutions are backed by unwavering service and support; standards our customers have come to depend on. The resourcefulness and flexibility that started Kingston continue to drive our business today.
