The new data center would be the first in the St. Louis metropolitan region outside the city limits. It will get built-in Westport, Missouri, a thriving commercial and entertainment center in St. Louis County.
FREMONT, CA: TierPoint, a top provider of secure, connected data center and cloud solutions, announced today that it intends to expand in Missouri. The IT firm is investing 20 million dollars in constructing a new 23,000 square foot Tier III data center in the St. Louis area. TierPoint now operates three sites in Missouri, one in Kansas City and two in St. Louis.
"Missouri is a leading destination for businesses in the tech industry, and we are excited that TierPoint is expanding its footprint in our state by establishing a fourth facility here," said Governor Mike Parson. "TierPoint's investment in Missouri, when it has the ability to locate anywhere in the country, proves our central location and business-friendly economy is fostering market access and creating economic opportunity. We appreciate TierPoint choosing to grow in Missouri and look forward to its continued success."
"Our decision to build this new facility was driven by strong and growing demand for world-class data center space in St. Louis and throughout the Midwest," said Jerry Kent, TierPoint Chair and Chief Executive Officer. "As a lifelong resident of the area, I'm extremely pleased that TierPoint was in a position to answer this demand and expand the geographic diversity of the region's commercial data center options."
The new data center will be the first of its kind in the St. Louis metropolitan region outside the city limits. It will get built-in Westport, Missouri, a thriving commercial and entertainment center in St. Louis County.
"When companies like TierPoint continue to invest in our state, it's a true testament to the data center friendly environment we have here in Missouri," said Subash Alias, Missouri Partnership CEO. "TierPoint's new facility will benefit from highly competitive electric rates, communications infrastructure that delivers very low latency, and an ecosystem of other global businesses and world-class talent nearby."
TierPoint's latest investment in Missouri will raise the company's total employment in the state to over 75 people. Missouri Partnership collaborated with AllianceSTL, a Greater St. Louis, Inc. effort, and Ameren Missouri to bring this project to the state. TierPoint runs 40 data centers across the United States, providing thousands of clients with a complete portfolio of cloud, colocation, and other digital infrastructure solutions.
