Seagate is saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, and would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family of the late Mr Lee and to all Singaporeans.
Mr Lee was truly a remarkable leader, statesman, and humanitarian whose vision and influence extended well beyond the shores of Singapore. He was a good friend to Seagate through the years and we are fortunate for having known him. He will be honored and remembered throughout the world.
Seagate benefited from Mr Lee's vision and support and we would not be where we are today if not for that. It was through his leadership and encouragement that Seagate first established its presence in Singapore in 1982. We will continue to honour his legacy and to support Singapore as it strives to reach the bright future he envisioned for it.
