This Taiwanese electronics company has certainly made a name for itself with its line of information technology products particularly motherboard and graphic cards as well as laptops, all-in-one personal computers and multimedia devices.
Established in August 1986, Micro Star International Co or MSI is among the largest IT manufacturers in the world. The company has 5 founders and focused on the mainboard and add on card industries. In 1988, it decided to move its production facility to Taipei Taiwan and by 1998, it came up with the industry’s first mainboard designed to support dual PentiumR II processor and Socket 7 processor. That same year, the company went public and was listed at the Taipei Stock Exchange.
MSI continued its expansion and by 2000, it established MSI Computer and the following year, MSI Electronics. The company also established its very first service center in Shanghai, China as part of its customer service support.
The year 2002 brought more accomplishments for the company in the form of innovative products such as the world’s 1st PC2PC WLAN mainboard, world’s 1st PC2PC Bluetooth mainboard, and 1st MSI communication product.
2003 heralded another milestone for MSI in the release of its first notebook product and first pen tablet PC product. The next year, the company introduced its 1st portable multimedia player product.
Clearly, MSI is on the right track especially after receiving prestigious awards such as Good Design Awards (2004) and iF Design Awards in Germany (2005). By 2006, the company unveiled the world’s first solar powered notebook and MP3 player product and the world’s 1st pocket size DTV. From then on, the company enjoyed notable achievements including the following:
- World’s 1st HATO notebook
- World’s 1st Crystal Collection notebook
- World’s 1st overclocking notebook
- 1st double wheel and smart video and music navigation service robot
- World’s 1st 10-inch Netbook
- World’s 1st hybrid storage notebook
- Introduced its 1st All-in-One PC
- 1st Ultra Slim notebook
The innovative products attracted attention left and right and many of them received recognition such as Buyer’s Choice, Media Choice Awards given by Computex; Taiwan Excellence Awards and CES Innovation Awards.
