In 1987 John Tu (left) and David Sun (right) combined their engineering expertise to create a Single In-Line Memory Module (SIMM) that became the sole product offering of Kingston Technology. It was a humble start for a company that went on top the Inc. 500 list just five years later. Today, Kingston Technology is one of the world's largest suppliers of memory modules and flash memory products. Kingston manufactures over 2,000 memory products for computers, servers, printers, MP3 players, and digital cameras.
