Edge colocation data center provider DartPoints, has just signed a definitive agreements to acquire Immedion, a provider of colocation, cloud, and data center services with facilities across South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana.

The acquisition which is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021 will more than double DartPoints’ edge colocation data center footprint across Seven Edge markets, expanding the company’s solutions in about six states across the US.

“We are excited about the combined opportunities Immedion’s colocation facilities bring to DartPoints. We value the enterprise customers that rely on Immedion’s cloud and managed services platforms and look forward to enhancing capabilities in the future. The team at Immedion has built a great company, and we will continue their commitment of ensuring a customer-first approach while adding service offerings across their entire footprint,” said Scott Willis, CEO of DartPoints.

The agreement to acquire Immedion is set to bolster DartPoints’ efforts in bringing its edge interconnection colocation and data centers further into tier 2 and tier 3 markets, offering carrier-neutral interconnection points, as well as access to content, cloud, applications, and other networks.

“We are proud of the company we’ve become over the past 14 years and look forward to creating more value and opportunities for our customers,” said Frank Mobley, Founder and CEO of Immedion.

“Our commitment to delivering best-in-class solutions remains steadfast, and I firmly believe that DartPoints’ mission to enhance connectivity nationally adds value to our existing capabilities. We look forward to enabling our customers with more services and locations, while embarking on a better digital future, together.”

DartPoints secured an investment fund from Astra Capital Management in May 2020, and has since then, launched an aggressive plan to expand its edge interconnection solutions to diverse markets. The company in August 2020 opened its North Liberty, Eastern Iowa edge colocation data center; enhanced its regional interconnection capabilities in Texas with LOGIX Fiber Networks; and acquired Metro Data Centers (MDC) in Ohio.
