Cologix Inc., a North American network neutral interconnection and data center company, announced a more than $150 million expansion to its current campus as its next investment in the Columbus region.
The company anticipates adding 15 new jobs to the region once the construction is completed. In addition, the Worthington Woods Boulevard complex will be expanded to incorporate a newly constructed data center, increasing its overall regional capacity by 36MW and enabling Cologix to keep up with the increase in demand for cloud connection.
Cologix, a 2010 startup with its headquarters in Denver, Colorado, has 40 data centers spread across 11 strategic edge markets in North America, three of which are in Columbus due largely to the region’s many benefits, including its strategic location, existing security and connectivity infrastructure.
With the opening of the new facility, Cologix will have invested significantly in both of its local businesses, totaling 39 employees across the Region. With the financing on the other hand, Cologix will be able to fund construction and infrastructure costs as well as buy new machinery and equipment for the biggest network-neutral data center campus in Columbus.
Moreover, in order to speed up its customers’ digital transformation at the edge, Cologix delivers huge scale and customized data center solutions with a growing array of Scalelogix and digital edge facilities that offer deep connection capabilities.
The Columbus Region is a priority market for Cologix hyperscale growth, and Laura Ortman, Cologix president and chief revenue officer, is thrilled to complete their second, multimillion-dollar investment in the region. She claims that in order to better service their new and existing customers in Columbus and throughout the Midwest, they are enhancing their potent skills.
“Columbus has long been a vital player in the technology sector, and we’re excited to have one of America’s leading data center companies recognize the talent and opportunities in the Region,” said Andrew J. Ginther, Mayor of Columbus.
