As of February 23th, 2023. In KIO we love to hear good news, especially if it is about our growth as a company and our teamwork. In this case, with the objective of having one more alternative for our business and cloud customers, we are excited to announce a major expansion with the acquisition of 25,000m2 of land for the construction of our third Data Center Campus in Queretaro!
Need power?, KIO’s got it!. As you know, we are one of the most relevant companies in the region that offers the best solutions to our customers and we support them with the necessary technology and the best talent to achieve their goals successfully. That is why our three technological complexes will be strategically located in the region of El Marques, interconnecting and concentrating a unified ecosystem in a "Mega Data Center Campus" where the main telecommunications providers, hyperscalers-cloud and IT service providers coexist.
"At KIO, we are very proud to continue with our expansion process. Queretaro is a state that will continue to grow as a "Technology Hub'' and receive investment in this kind of infrastructure. In fact, we are pioneers in the deployment of data centers in the region. KIO will continue expanding and offering the best services and solutions through our consolidated and unique Data Center ecosystem," said Santiago Suinaga, Executive Vicepresident and General Manager of KIO Data Centers.
This announcement comes in addition to the significant investment that we recently informed for a second Data Center Campus, KIO QRO2, which will begin construction in the first quarter of this year, and the investment made in 2022 to strengthen and expand our Data Center Campus KIO QRO1. The design and construction of KIO QRO 3 is scheduled for 2024.
Our presence in a key state for investments in IT infrastructure and Data Centers such as Queretaro, favors our business strategy, since the geographic proximity and low latency of transactions with leading companies in the industry are strong values and differentiators of the ecosystem that we will build up over the next two years.
At KIO we live under one purpose: use technology to improve everyone's life. We provide Infrastructure services in Data Centers and Mission Critical Information Technologies that operate the largest network of data centers in the region, with the highest security, availability and density to manage and monitor services in the public, private and hybrid cloud, cybersecurity, business applications, automation and artificial intelligence, with a presence in Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic and Spain.
