Southfield, MI (PRWEB) April 14, 2016
Nexcess.net, a global data center and managed hosting company, announced this week the upcoming opening of two new facilities that will double its footprint in Southfield, MI. Company leaders said the expansions position Nexcess to continue on a rapid growth track in the coming years.
“As a global company founded in Southfield, we’re proud to be dedicating two new facilities here and affirming our commitment to strong partnership with the Southfield community,” said Chris Wells, CEO of Nexcess. “Nexcess is well-positioned to create even more high-tech, well-paying jobs, bringing talent from across the nation to live, work and raise their families here. Our new facilities will allow us to keep growing well into the future.”
Founded in 2000 in Southfield, Nexcess has expanded from a small company to a global leader in data center and IT services – operating data centers in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and the Netherlands. The company has more than doubled local employment in just six years, bringing high-tech jobs to the area and putting Southfield on the map as a destination for skilled IT workers.
Nexcess currently operates major data center facilities in Southfield and Dearborn. The two new spaces – currently in the final stages of construction on Melrose Avenue – are each about 6,500 square feet.
“These are world-class facilities designed to attract and retain a world-class workforce,” said Wells. “We’re proud of the modern design used for the buildings and the opportunity to incorporate outdoors spaces that create a great atmosphere for our employees.”
Wells noted that strong, proactive partnerships with community leaders will remain important as Nexcess looks to keep growing in Southfield.
“We want to form lasting partnerships as we continue to expand,” he said. “Nexcess is part of a rapidly-growing industry, with more opportunity on the horizon, and we strongly believe our business and our hometown should grow together.”
