Missouri-based TierPoint said it will invest US$20 million in expanding its footprint in the St. Louis region as data centre procurement grows in the area.

The company will build a new 23,000 sq. ft. Tier III data centre that will added to TierPoint’s three locations in the state including one in Kansas City and two in St. Louis.

TierPoint has already secured an anchor tenant for the new facility in Westport, a business and entertainment district in St. Louis County.

The site is expected to be finished and open to clients in the second quarter of 2022. 

Governor Mike Parson, said: “Missouri is a leading destination for businesses in the tech industry, and we are excited that TierPoint is expanding its footprint in our state by establishing a fourth facility here.

“TierPoint’s investment in Missouri, when it has the ability to locate anywhere in the country, proves our central location and business-friendly economy is fostering market access and creating economic opportunity. We appreciate TierPoint choosing to grow in Missouri and look forward to its continued success.”

Jerry Kent, TierPoint Chair and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our decision to build this new facility was driven by strong and growing demand for world-class data centre space in St. Louis and throughout the Midwest.

“As a lifelong resident of the area, I’m extremely pleased that TierPoint was in a position to answer this demand and expand the geographic diversity of the region’s commercial data centre options.”

TierPoint’s new investment in Missouri will bring its total workforce in the state to approximately 75.

Missouri Partnership worked with AllianceSTL, an initiative of Greater St. Louis, Inc., and Ameren Missouri to bring this project to the state.
