The data centre sector here continues to be one of our most significant markets, and this expansion will enable us to enhance our service offerings and further grow our business across Europe.

This new location not only positions us closer to our clients and projects in the region, but also allows us to tap into the rich pool of talent and cutting-edge technology that Frankfurt offers. We are excited about this venture and look forward to playing a pivotal role in driving the data centre industry forward, not just in Germany but across Europe.”
