In 1987, Kingston® entered the market with a single product. In response to the serious shortage of surface-packaged memory chips, Kingston founders Du Jichuan and Sun David designed memory modules and re-established industry standards for the next few years. Kingston Technology combines one of the most extensive and rigorous testing processes in the memory industry, a unique free technical support center, and a steady stream of technological innovations that have consistently established industry quality and reliability standards since its inception. Reliability is the cornerstone of Kingston's product strategy. It plays a key role in maintaining long-term customer relationships that have evolved over the years. Kingston has also been committed to exceeding industry standards in every new development while maintaining product reliability.
