Verbatim Overview

From its foundation in 1969, Verbatim has shaped the development of data storage technology. From floppy disks to CDs, DVDs and high definition Blu-ray media, to external hard drives, flash memory cards, USB drives and SSDs - the extent of Verbatim's extensive portfolio and influence in the storage industry is unrivalled. In Latin Verbatim means “word for word”, and has been used since the company's founding to illustrate the principle of accurate, error free recording of data. A well-recognized global brand, Verbatim is sold in over 120 countries. For the last five years, it has recorded the largest worldwide share of recordable optical discs sold by any brand. As part of the Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation Group (MCC), Verbatim benefits from outstanding research and development, spawning innovations which have shaped today's global storage industry. This has been recognized by the numerous international comparative product awards that Verbatim has won over the years.
