Australian firm Edge Centres first announced plans for expansion into the US in April 2022, raising $5.7 million for its US rollout. It has made a number of acquisitions in the US this year.

The company has installed a Point of Presence (PoP) in CoreSite’s One Wilshire carrier hotel data center in Los Angeles, California.

It then launched its first facility in St. Louis – and bought a company hosting out of the same building – before acquiring a second in the state located in Columbia. The company recently acquired a former Switch & Data facility in Reston, Virginia.

In July the company acquired US data center firm Multacom, which operated a 1MW facility at 707 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.

Edge Centres said it aims to have 20 facilities in the US by the end of 2024. In his own post on this week’s launch, CEO Jonathan Eaves said the company has four facilities currently undergoing due diligence.

The company has previously said it is planning roll-outs in Portland, Oregon; Dallas, Texas; Detroit, Michigan; and New Jersey.
