Involta acquires Green Bay-based data center and land

Dec. 26, 2023
The Carlyle-backed company’s entry into the Green Bay market will bring the colocation needed to advance enterprise and regional growth. 

Involta, a hybrid IT and managed services firm, has acquired a 24.5-acre site housing an existing data center in the Green Bay region. Through this acquisition, Involta will implement a multi-phased approach to extend the current data center footprint to an expandable campus with up to 20 MW capacity. 

The future campus is poised to meet rising enterprise colocation demands with the Involta SecurePower colocation model, which provides mission-critical data center space and industry-leading power, security and connectivity services directly embedded into its facilities.

Located just 40 minutes from Green Bay, the campus project will support critical high-tech industries' growing needs and performance requirements with the colocation and services needed for enterprise workloads and AI applications. Additionally, the location's proximity is highly desirable for edge deployments. The area provides a low-risk zone with moderate temperatures to help regulate power demands, along with attractive tax incentives and the recent designation by the Biden administration confirming the state as an official U.S. Regional Tech Hub (RTH).

"The Green Bay market is a sought-after region across our portfolio of enterprise clients spanning healthcare organizations, manufacturers and financial institutions," said Bruce Lehrman, Founder and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors for Involta. "As this market continues to grow, our evolving footprint in this vibrant region will deliver the capacity, fiber infrastructure, and hybrid IT services required to support high-performance computing for the most demanding and complex regulated industries."

At the epicenter of Involta's expansive data center network, the 20-MW campus will bolster the company's future development of energy-efficient data centers and bring robust, redundant fiber infrastructure to the Wisconsin market, driving more connectivity both locally and nationally while delivering unmatched access to its Midwest data centers from Iowa to Minnesota to Ohio.

This acquisition marks Involta’s thirteenth data center location. Involta's data center facilities are located across multiple edge markets. Sustainability is at the heart of the company's growth trajectory, reflected in six recent ENERGY STAR® certifications and the Idaho Awards for Leadership in Energy Efficiency.
