Here at RamCity, we know that some people are nervous about buying products online. So, we took some time to tell you a bit about our story and give you some additional 'Peace of Mind' when shopping online with us.
RamCity was founded by Rod Bland in 2003 who had dreamed of running his own online business since his early twenties (he's the one standing up in the picture on the right).
It began as a part-time venture selling Kingston memory for a small number of systems, and the entire website catalogue was built by hand.
Rod had a full-time job already so processed orders in the early morning and developed the website and systems in the evening after work. The business grew and about 9 months later he quit his job in the corporate work to then work as an IT Consultant while continuing to build RamCity.
RamCity began selling Kingston products only in Australia in 2003, and the business grew slow and steady.
Many other competitors were entering the market at that time, so in 2005 we began searching for manufacturing partners to produce our own brand of memory as a means of diversifying our business and offering customers a lower priced, yet high quality memory upgrade alternative.
For a few years we sold memory under our own brand name, and as the business grew we established relationships with brand name memory manufacturers and found they could offer more reliable and compatible products. Today we stick with the most well know memory and storage brands - Crucial (Micron), Hynix, Samsung, Western Digital and Seagate as well as Mushkin, Corsair, and G.SKILL for specialty items.
In 2011 we further expanded our product catalogue with Solid State Drives, Hard Drives and associated accessories.
In 2018, we added graphics cards and monitors due to popular demand from our customers.
Once RamCity was a few years old, there were too many orders to do our own warehousing, picking, packing and shipping, so we outsourced this to a ASX listed 3PWL (Third Party Warehousing and Logistics) company. Due to the superb location right near the Brisbane airport, we can quickly service customers in all states, with 98% of in-stock orders shipping the same day and arriving 1-2 business days later.

Sticking to our Mission and Core Values
In 2010 the management team brainstormed with the rest of the staff over several weeks to put our Company Mission and Core Values in writing. We then boiled it down to two simple statements:
- Our Mission: We help people live happier and more productive lives
- Our Core Objective: We provide the right upgrade, fast, the first time
