#MoreMissouri21: Tech Company TierPoint Announces Plans to Build New Facility in Missouri

Missouri continues to deliver more than you expect. More global industries. More diverse assets. More talent. All month long, Missouri Partnership is celebrating “more” by taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from 2021.

In September, TierPoint, a leading provider of secure, connected data center and cloud solutions, announced plans to invest with a new data center in St. Louis, Missouri.

“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,” said Governor Mike Parson. “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.”

The tech company has invested $20 million to build the new 23,000 square foot data center, which is expected to be finished and open to clients in the second quarter of 2022.

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