With the acquisition of Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST), now a wholly owned subsidiary of Western Digital Corporation, we have expanded R&D resources, a broader product portfolio, greater manufacturing scale and a larger geographic footprint. With two successful independent subsidiaries, WD and HGST, we expect to accomplish great things as we build the new WD to be the worlds leading storage solutions provider.
