Nexcess.net, a global provider of performance-optimized managed hosting, has announced the upcoming opening of two new data center facilities that will double its footprint in Southfield, Michigan. Company leaders said the expansions position Nexcess to continue on a rapid growth track in the coming years.

“As a global company founded in Southfield, we’re proud to be dedicating two new facilities here and affirming our commitment to strong partnership with the Southfield community,” said Chris Wells, CEO of Nexcess. “Nexcess is well-positioned to create even more high-tech, well-paying jobs, bringing talent from across the nation to live, work and raise their families here. Our new facilities will allow us to keep growing well into the future.”
Founded in 2000, Nexcess has expanded from a small company to a global provider of managed hosting services – operating data centers in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and the Netherlands. The company has more than doubled local employment in just six years, bringing high-tech jobs to the area and putting Southfield on the map as a destination for skilled IT workers.
