SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quality Technology Services (QualityTech), one of the nation’s largest privately-held providers of data center facilities and managed services, announced the acquisition of First National Technology Solutions’ (FNTS) customer portfolio in the Kansas City market. QualityTech currently manages and operates more than 2-million square feet of data centers with a market value in excess of half-a-billion dollars.
Prior to this acquisition, FNTS had been managing QualityTech’s data centers in this market. With this client acquisition, QualityTech will now provide its wide breadth of managed services in the Midwest market.
“These new customers will now benefit from QualityTech’s fully-managed services and technology solutions. Our robust connectivity, power and cooling density are just a few of the many reasons we’re a leader in the industry,” said Mark Waddington, President of QualityTech. “Our highly-experienced team has the ability to tailor collocation services for businesses in need of scalable space and bandwidth, to give our clients peace of mind.”
The acquisition of these customers from First National Technology Solutions increases QualityTech’s presence in the Midwest. The purchase also brings QualityTech contracted annual revenue in excess of $100 million. “We’re looking to grow and expand into other areas of the country. This acquisition was the perfect opportunity for us to move in that direction,” added Waddington.
QualityTech provides an entire suite of managed services and currently handles all managed services in its 2-million square feet of data center facility space.
This deal follows the company’s recent delivery of 200,000 square feet of Phase I at its QualityTech Metro Data Center in Atlanta, GA. QualityTech purchased the 990,000 square foot data center in October 2006 to grow its national footprint of data centers and to meet the growing demand for data center space from corporate customers.
