atNorth has announced plans to acquire two data centre facilities in Finland from Advania.
According to atNorth, it will take over the operations and management of the two facilities, as well as taking on current staff. The company has said it is also planning to build a third site in Finland.
“We are happy to launch atNorth’s operations in Finland. It is a part of our growth strategy to grow and expand our services sustainably and strategically across the Nordics. As organisations increasingly move IT workloads to the Nordics, the investment into this region is critical for atNorth to continue to support our customers in a sustainable, efficient manner,” said Eyjólfur Magnús Kristinsson, CEO, atNorth.
“We are proud to invest into the region and Finnish data centre industry with this acquisition, as we prepare to expand further into the region. Our presence in Finland will align our vision to grow our Nordics footprint and vision to become the go-to decarbonisation platform for today and tomorrow’s global organisations.”
Atte Kekkonen, CEO, Advania Finland, added, “An important reason to establish a partnership with atNorth in Finland is their dedicated focus to deliver high quality and sustainable services.”
“We appreciate teaming up with companies with the same customer focus and quality mindset as ourselves.”
