SanDisk Celebrates Japan Milestones

Stocks in this article: SNDK

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today announced it is celebrating its tenth anniversary of participation in joint venture fab operations in Yokkaichi, Japan, and its twentieth anniversary of sales activities in the country.

Over the past decade, SanDisk has invested more than $7 billion dollars in state-of-the-art silicon manufacturing resulting in some of the world’s most advanced wafer production facilities. Not only does this make SanDisk one of Japan’s largest foreign investors, but these facilities produce leading-edge NAND flash memory that is helping fuel the smart digital lifestyle for people and companies on a global scale.

Together with its strategic joint venture partner Toshiba, SanDisk has been driving tremendous innovations in NAND flash memory that have enabled consumer electronics devices such as tablets, smartphones, and portable personal storage devices, as well as solid-state drives (SSDs) for ultra thin-and-light computers and the enterprise.

“Flash memory has become one of the most important technologies of the 20th and early 21st centuries,” said industry analyst Tim Bajarin of Creative Strategies. “It revolutionized the photography industry. It revolutionized the PC and the mobile industries. And it’s on track to revolutionize the enterprise going forward. SanDisk’s strategy and investments in Japan have played a critical role in advancing technologies we take for granted today, and I fully expect their leadership will be a key part of the technology landscape for many years to come.”

“On behalf of the four thousand SanDisk employees, and our customers and partners worldwide, I am pleased to mark this important milestone of two successful decades in Japan,” said Sanjay Mehrotra, SanDisk president and CEO. “Japan has provided a solid foundation for SanDisk’s success. Our joint venture with Toshiba is one of the most successful and long lasting in the semiconductor industry, and together, we are helping consumers and businesses around the world benefit from leading-edge flash solutions.”
