Penta Infra announces the acquisition of the KPN data center in Haarlem. Penta Infra, a fast-growing provider of reliable, sustainable, and highly connected edge and core data centers in Europe. The facility was previously owned by KPN for their hosting and data center services and is currently limited in its use.
Penta Infra currently owns and operates a portfolio of 11 data centers in Germany, France, Denmark and The Netherlands. The acquisition of the carrier and cloud neutral KPN data center establishes Penta Infra’s presence in the metropolitan region Amsterdam and will expand its footprint in the Dutch market, which is part of Penta Infra’s long term strategy to expand its pan-European portfolio of edge and core data centers. KPN will remain a tenant in the location so that they can ensure continuity for their network division while Penta Infra redevelops the other rooms into state-of-the-art IT rooms for colocation customers.
Igor Josephus Jitta, Partner at Photon Capital: “Photon Capital is proud to witness another milestone in our portfolio company, Penta Infra. The acquisition of this new data center fits well with the long term strategy of the company and complements their existing portfolio. We will continue to look for add-on acquisitions in the European market, like this one, to accelerate the growth of Penta Infra.”
