Huttig Building Products, one of America’s largest wholesale distributors of specialty building products listed at Nasdaq, has selected TierPoint to provide colocation and data center migration support services.
As one of America’s largest wholesale distributors of specialty building products and millwork for residential construction, repair and remodel, and light commercial applications, the St. Louis-based company has experienced rapid growth. To accommodate that growth, Huttig Building Products made the strategic decision to outsource hosting of its primary data center. The move to the TierPoi t colocation data center would allow Huttig to recapture data center space at its corporate headquarters while positioning its IT team to focus on strategic business initiatives.
“We were impressed by TierPoint’s consultative team approach to ensuring our data center migration is as seamless as possible,” said Mike Truax, Huttig’s Director of Infrastructure. “In selecting TierPoint we considered many factors, including design of the facility, staff expertise in supporting our requirements, security and scalability of the infrastructure, and customer service focus; all of which are essential to Huttig’s continued growth and IT success.”
TierPoint offers a comprehensive solution portfolio of private, multitenant, hyperscale, and hybrid cloud, plus colocation, disaster recovery, security and other managed IT services.
“Enterprises that need colocation services today are planning for the future which could include cloud and managed services,” said Dan Capra, Regional Vice President, TierPoint. “Huttig is a very forward thinking company and we are excited to partner with them to meet their current and future needs.”
