On ShowStoppers TV, BIWIN delivers news about data storage — talking about the company’s market entry and latest expansion in Europe, its $54 million new campus in China, and the very latest in personal storage and memory for work, study and play– including esports and gaming. Followed by an open discussion on solid state memory and storage technology.

BIWIN Storage Technology Company Limited (“BIWIN”) produces high quality flash storage and memory, and is known in consumer, corporate and industrial segments for its independent development capabilities in hardware, software, firmware and storage algorithms. BIWIN’s experience in production (also along with its complete in-house IC packaging, testing, and SMT production lines) earn BIWIN many awards and a reputation for providing global customers with high-quality storage and memory products.

The company’s latest facility, the BIWIN Huizhou Science and Technology Zone, features a state-of-the-art R&D lab and 110,000 m2 of production.

The founders started in the flash storage business in Shenzhen, China in 1995, embracing the “WIN-WIN” business philosophy that would later become the hallmark for BIWIN. In 2009 they made a key decision for the business: to add IC encapsulation (or IC packaging) process into the factory. A milestone so remarkable that the vast of majority of competing companies still have not reached that level (they outsource the process or buy the packaged IC packaged). This successful step led to the 2010 creation of the company we know today, BIWIN Storage Technology Company Limited.

Under official license, BIWIN also designs, produces, and markets consumer flash storage and memory for several famous computer brands. After years of success in the storage industry, the company has launched Biwintech, its own consumer brand.
