The deal, terms of which were not disclosed, further positions the company as a major technically focused real estate and facility management services provider for the data center market worldwide, BGIS asserts.

According to BGIS, CSG provides services across the U.S., Canada, and Europe for data centers of all sizes.

The Boston-based provider has clients in construction, data services, financial, technology, and telecommunication.

"Acquiring CSG further builds upon the success BGIS has enjoyed for over 25 years," said Gord Hicks, BGIS chief executive officer. "We will continue to provide leading organizations in the telecom, financial services, and government sectors with the very best facilities management services the industry has to offer. This deal is a tremendous opportunity for our clients to have access to additional scale, knowledge, and expertise in critical environments, enabling continued innovation and value creation for their respective businesses."

"We are very excited about this acquisition. In 2016, we expanded in the U.S. through McKinstry FMS and created one of the largest data center and critical environment facility management companies in North America," said Brian Fellows, BGIS president, U.S. Operations. "Our acquisition of CSG deepens our expertise in the area of critical environments and creates an industry first capability of an end-to-end 'commissioning to stable operations.' "
