Xigmatek Chats with Rage3D
Founded in 2005, Xigmatek is a relatively new company with a target goal of becoming a leader in PC cooling through a combination of innovation and delivering value to their customers. Lets take a quick break from our Dark Knight review and talk with Xigmatek:
Rage3D: How many employees does Xigmatek have worldwide, and how are they distributed?
About 75 employees worldwide, with headquarters in Taiwan. Engineering labs are located in Taiwan, China and Europe, with a Design Center in Europe. Sales and Logistic units are present in the US, Europe, Taiwan and China.
Rage3D: Has the global economic downturn had an effect of Xigmatek, and if so in which areas? (i.e. cuts in R&D, staffing, sales etc.)
Xigmatek: We had not such a big impact as the big companies, we are still growing and we are working almost just in time which is saving us costs.
Rage3D: Xigmatek is a cool name - does it have any special meaning or derivation?
Xigmatek: Not really, the TEK means Technology but the XIGMA is more or less a branding name.
Rage3D: What's the best part of working for Xigmatek?
Xigmatek: All, good environment, innovation and more.
Rage3D: When planning & designing products, what is the focus? Innovation, providing a better product than a benchmark competitor, value for consumer, mix of all three, other?
Xigmatek: It is actually a mix of all; we always pay attention on the price performance and the additional features we can forward to our customers / end users.
