Chinese flash storage maker Longsys acquires Lexar


After Micron discontinued the Lexar memory cards retail business in June this year, they did confirm that they are exploring opportunities to sell all or part of the Lexar business. Yesterday the Chinese flash storage maker Longsys officially announced that they acquired Lexar - from the press release:

Longsys, a world leader in consumer flash storage, today announced that it has acquired the Lexar trademark and branding rights from Micron Technology, Inc. The Lexar brand has long been recognized as a leading brand for high-performance, high-reliability removable storage solutions for a wide variety of applications, such as the professional photography market. This acquisition provides assurance to existing Lexar customers that the solutions and support they have come to expect from Lexar branded products will continue to be available. Additionally, the market reach and product breadth provided by Longsys promises to expand the Lexar customer experience into new market segments and geographies.

Lexar memory cards are still available for sale at AmazonB&H and Adorama.
