Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announces that tomorrow marks 25 years in the business as the largest third-party manufacturer of computer and device memory. Kingston was founded on October 17, 1987 by CEO and co-founder John Tu, and COO and co-founder David Sun.

The entrepreneurial spirit of both owners and the success of the company have been recognized globally through the years. Kingston’s core tenets of respect, loyalty, flexibility and integrity have created an exemplary corporate culture; one that guides its relationships with customers, partners and vendors, and to which Kingston owes its success.



“It is a great and humbling feeling to be a part of this company. The best aspects of the last 25 years here have been the people who work here, our partners and all of the great relationships we have been a part of,” said John Tu, CEO and co-founder, Kingston. “I am truly amazed by the thought of where we started and where we are today, and look forward to the next 25 years.”


Kingston is marking its 25th anniversary in the United States, Canada and EMEA by holding a contest with a grand prize of $2,500 (USD) and the opportunity to design a USB Flash drive. Other prizes include $250, solid-state drives and Kingston’s 25th anniversary USB drive. Full contest details can be found here. Details on other promotions and activities will be forthcoming.

A series of quotes from Kingston executives around the world as well as more from John Tu is available here. The 25th anniversary video can be found here as well as more information including a timeline of Kingston’s history.
