Thompson Street Capital Partners, Charterhouse Group, and Cequel III Acquisition of Baltimore Technology Park Continues Data Center Platform Expansion

ST. LOUIS (June 27, 2013) – Thompson Street Capital Partners (TSCP) and Charterhouse Group, Inc. (Charterhouse), in partnership with Cequel III, a St. Louis-based management and investment firm, have acquired Baltimore Technology Park (BTP).  BTP is one of the largest carrier-neutral data centers in Maryland, providing complete server colocation services to customers along the eastern seaboard via a state-of-the-art facility.

BTP (www.baltimoretechnologypark.com) becomes part of the partnership’s growing data center platform that includes Dallas-based Colo4; Perimeter Technologies, serving the Oklahoma market via datacenters in Tulsa and Oklahoma City; TierPoint, which operates datacenters in the Pacific Northwest; and AdHost, with data centers also in the Pacific Northwest marketplace. Including BTP’s 11,000 square feet of raised floor space, the datacenter facilities now total more than 130,000 square feet of raised floor space. Additional expansion is currently underway at the BTP datacenter and at a number of other locations across the platform.

“Our rapidly-growing data center platform now has a coast-to-coast presence,” said Bob Dunn, Managing Director, TSCP. “The company serves West Coast-based customers through our facilities in Spokane and Seattle, Washington; serves customers throughout the country’s central corridor via our Dallas- and Oklahoma-based data centers; and customers along the eastern seaboard through BTP’s Maryland data center.

“The addition of BTP is an exciting step in the continuing growth of our data center platform – both for us and our customers,” Dunn said. “We look forward to working with our partners, Charterhouse Group, Inc., and Cequel III, to expand and continually improve the services offered through our facilities across the United States.”
