The order, which was confirmed during lockdown, is for a Frankfurt based colocation data centre and is worth approximately £10m. It is seen as further evidence of the continuing success of this UK business during what is widely regarded as one of the most difficult trading periods the world has endured for a very long time.
Airedale International, which established its dedicated European data centre solutions team just over a year ago with Jonas Caino at the helm, is already reaping the fruits of this investment, with last year’s announcement of their contract with US-based data centre provider Cyrus One. Having seen turnover soar by more than 20% in the last financial year, and with a strong forecast for the year ahead despite the pandemic, Airedale is now taking the next step and looking to replicate this success in the US market, home of Airedale’s parent company Modine.
Managing director, Tony Cole, said: “Whilst undoubtedly one of the most challenging trading periods our country has seen for a very long time, the last 12 months has seen a sustained period of growth for Airedale International. Whilst the pandemic continues to throw up obstacles – and ones which we take very seriously - we have been able to continue to deliver the pioneering and innovative products we are known and trusted for.
“We have worked hard to attract interest from both the European and US data centre markets and will continue to invest in this area, where demand is high.”
