Research & Development (R&D) Department

Research & Development (R&D) Department

The  design and production of storage systems in the world is almost monopolized by three countries (America, Japan, China) and there are less than ten major storage system companies. Therefore, advancing in the high-tech domain of the production and development of storage systems and competing with major global companies requires excessive innovation, research and development. Thus HPDS Corp has always invested heavily in R&D department and most of the company employees belong to this department.
