Peak 10 Expands Charlotte Footprint
David Jones, President and CEO of Peak 10, announced today that Peak 10 will expand its Charlotte presence. The Charlotte Chamber assisted Peak 10 in 2000 with their corporate headquarters relocation from Jacksonville, FL. Since then, the company has experienced significant growth in the Charlotte market.
“We are committed to the Charlotte market. This commitment shows through the expansion of our local operations — three times over the last seven years. We plan continued, steady growth over the next five to 10 years,” said David Jones, President and CEO of Peak 10.
Peak 10’s new 62,000-square-foot facility will be located in the University Research Park area in David Taylor Corporate Center. The energy-oriented, high-growth company will initially build out 14,000 square feet of space and expand into the full building as their customer base grows. The new addition will bring the company footprint to more than 129,000 square feet.
Peak 10 has added roughly 30 employees in Charlotte during the last year and plans to match that in 2012. The construction of the new Peak 10 data center will require more than 100 construction workers/jobs over the span of nine months.
“Peak 10 is Charlotte’s poster child of a successful entrepreneurial startup company,” said Bob Morgan, Charlotte Chamber President. “Its new investment here affirms three key points:
• The number of small- and medium-sized businesses served by Peak 10 is rapidly growing.
• Charlotte is an entrepreneurial-friendly city with opportunities for all.
• Charlotte’s reliable and inexpensive source of electricity is a competitive advantage.”
