As part of our ongoing efforts to connect with industry leaders in the tech world, we reached out to interview some of the premier manufacturers who might be able to educate us on various aspects of the industry. It is not every day you get an opportunity to visit a Premier Manufacturing Company like Transcend, a world class leader in the field of memory and consumer electronics. Along with my invitation I had the pleasure of touring their facility. After our tour, I sat down with the General Manager, Clarence Chan, and Marketing Director Leslie Garcia for an interview about Transcend.
