Managed hosting and data centre services firm expands in Nottingham

Following increased demand for managed hosting and data centre services, CWCS Managed Hosting has acquired a 9,300 sq ft building in Nottingham to increase the company’s data centre footprint.

Headquartered in Nottingham, with locations throughout the UK and USA, CWCS provides 24/7/365 enterprise-grade infrastructure for mission critical data systems, websites and applications through a choice of cloud, bare metal, dedicated servers, and colocation services.

The acquisition of the new site follows extensive research and the data centre is due to be online in 2024. The announcement forms part of CWCS’s strategy to support growing demand from existing and new customers, as well as supporting the growth for current and future acquisitions.

Karl Mendez, Managing Director of CWCS Managed Hosting, said: “In the last three years, we have embarked on an ambitious growth strategy to expand our portfolio of services through company acquisitions.

“There’s an increasing demand for hosted solutions, especially private cloud and server colocation where customers want their data in a redundant and secure data centre facility with technicians available 24/7, and that’s exactly what we can offer.

“Opening a new data centre in Nottingham significantly increases our capacity to offer flexible options comprising of cloud hosting, dedicated server hosting, and colocation services.

“Above all, it ensures we can continue to meet the individual needs of our customers and positions us as a partner in mission critical data hosting.”

Giles Davis, Partner at chartered surveyors, Geo Hallam & Sons, acted as the agent to find premises for the state-of-the-art facility. Giles said: “The search to find a suitable facility was a challenging brief, given the nature of the CWCS business.

“We looked for premises that were well located and could be stripped back with planning permission. The building we’ve secured is an ideal canvas for CWCS to fit out with their new data centre and associated offices. We wish the team every success.”

Mark Tomlinson, Director at FHP, who acted for the sellers in the sale, said: “The lack of industrial freehold opportunities could have prevented CWCS from achieving its expansion, but by working with Giles Davis at Geo Hallam we’ve been able to solve the problem by putting forward a building they can repurpose, securing a sale for our client, and helping CWCS achieve its vision.

“We are delighted to have completed this deal with them and wish CWCS every success with its expansion.”
