Antwerp, 8 May 2023, 18h00 CET – Datacenter United, Belgian provider of high-quality colocation data center services that is part of the portfolio of infrastructure investor TINC, is increasing the number of data centers under its management to nine. In addition to the 6 existing locations in Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent & Bruges, the 2 Limburg data centers of Hasselt DC are now also part of the Datacenter United ecosystem. In the southern axis of Kortrijk, the construction of a new data center was recently started in order to provide digital services to the local Flemish and Walloon market on the one hand, and the Northern French region on the other.
Friso Haringsma, Managing Director van Datacenter United: “With these initiatives, we are taking another step to strengthen our position on the Belgian data center market. We can now offer our professional services from no fewer than 9 locations. For our customers, this means that we can guarantee an even better geographical presence and economies of scale. With this, we are laying the foundation for the digital economy of the future.”
René Lacroix, CEO of Hasselt DC: “For Hasselt DC, this is a logical step to be able to develop the full potential of our data centers. As a pioneer of colocation data centers in Limburg, this laid the foundation for the digital development of the region at the time. This joining of forces ensures an increase in scale and further connects the Limburg region with the rest of Flanders.”
Arnoud De Ridder, Director Digital Infrastructure TINC: “This investment represents a great step forward in our ambition to build a leading group of data centers in Belgium.
