DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BCS, the nation’s only independent, single-source data center operations provider, today announced signing a 10-year lease for more than 15,000 square feet of office space in the iconic 14-story Millennium Tower in the Dallas suburb of Addison.
The space will serve as BCS’s national headquarters and the new location for their Tactical Operations Center. Millennium Tower is managed by the Dallas-based Gaedeke Group.
Beginning June 1 BCS plans to occupy the newly leased space, which will include the company's operations, technical services, sales, marketing, training and program management teams. The BCS Tactical Operations Center performs manned remote monitoring, maintenance and incident response 24/7/365 utilizing the BCS CriticalWorks™ platform. Currently BCS has administrative offices in Texarkana, Texas and operates data centers across the United States, with plans to expand to Canada and Europe.
“Dallas is a logical and strategic choice for our national headquarters," said BCS CEO Danny Crocker. “It's a key market for the data center industry, and the central location makes coast-to-coast business and travel easy."
BCS provides data center facility management, IT services and physical security using a single, fully integrated, self-performance model. BCS employees perform a minimum of 80% of all services, in contrast with industry common practice of contracting with multiple vendors and subcontractors.
BCS currently employs 130 data center operations technicians, engineers and other professionals with plans to increase to more than 200 employees by year's end. In November 2019 BCS announced the operational launch for a U.S.-based global leader in cloud-based financial services.
