Welcome to our blog community! This blog will show you how CED is helping emerging companies scale and grow in the Research Triangle Region. Plus we post news about our members and entrepreneurial resources.
CED Member Peak 10 Inc. announced plans on Wednesday to expand its Charlotte operations to the University Research Park area near UNC-Charlotte. Its new 62,000-square-foot facility will be built out in phases, as the business continue to expand.
“Peak 10 continues to grow its managed services portfolio delivered via our cloud and our customer owned platforms based on increasing demand from new and existing customers. The demand for our rock solid solutions led us to add a fourth Peak 10 facility and a new location, in Charlotte,” said Pat O’Brien, the vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Charlotte in a statement. “Because of its convenient location in University Research Park, our new facility is easily accessible to businesses throughout Charlotte as well as the outlying counties. This new, enterprise class facility can also serve as a disaster recovery and business continuity location for customers that have intercity, interstate or national requirements.”
The new building is located within the David Taylor Corporate Center, which is owned by Beacon Partners. It brings Peak 10’s entire Charlotte footprint to more than 129,000 square feet.
“The entrepreneurial and dynamic business climate in Charlotte has served our company well; it’s a great place to do business,” said David Jones, the president and CEO of Peak 10. “Our team delivers Infrastructure-as-a-Service to many of the 240+ energy-oriented organizations, in addition to high-growth technology companies, making Peak 10 a backbone to the Charlotte region’s economic growth and stability. We are committed to this region and it shows through the expansion of our local operations three times over the last seven years and continued, steady growth planned over the next 5-10 years.”
Peak 10 operates nine other technology campuses in the U.S., serving customers around the globe. Peak 10 is hosting the CED Member-Only Reception on May 30, 2012, at their office in Morrisville. To join the region's entrepreneurial community, make sure you register for the reception.
