TES Makes Significant Investment to Scale Data Center Services
SINGAPORE, July 31, 2023 (Newswire.com) - TES, a world leader in IT lifecycle solutions, has announced a significant multimillion-dollar investment to amplify its footprint and expand its team in the data center sphere. This substantial financial commitment directed toward enhancing infrastructure and recruiting experienced talent reinforces TES's commitment to delivering world-class services in the data center retirement process.
TES Americas General Manager Bill Vasquez spoke about the company's strong existing capabilities and its vision to elevate these to be best in class: "TES's global footprint and scale is ideal for fully supporting the data center space from edge computing to large hyperscale decommissioning projects."
Central to this investment is the establishment of a dedicated, purpose-built facility in Virginia. The expansive 128,000-sq.-ft. site will cater exclusively to ITAD data center asset processing. The facility will be designed to offer comprehensive solutions and to handle all aspects of the retirement process, from full data center decommissioning to testing/repair, data sanitization, and disposition.
In addition to infrastructure development, TES has recruited a dedicated team of experts in the hyperscale data center domain. This team, which is projected to grow to 50 members by the end of the year, will focus solely on executing and refining these enhanced services.
Eric Ingebretsen, TES chief commercial officer, shared his views on the company's robust current capabilities and the strategic importance of this investment:
"Being able to process and disposition data center assets globally has been a core competency for TES for a while now. The goal of this investment is to enable the processing and dispositioning of data center assets at the hyperscale level, which drives a fundamentally different approach. Processing 5,000 drives at a time is one thing; being able to process 100,000 drives at a time is something entirely different."
Vice President of Hyperscale Remarketing Keith Layton added, "In my 27 years of secondary market IT resell, I have never experienced the volatility that we have today. With a true global presence, TES is uniquely positioned to weather the storm, grow throughout the U.S. hyperscale market, and provide world-class services to our global customers."
This substantial financial commitment not only underscores TES's dedication to providing top-tier ITAD solutions, but it is also a scalable global solution for data centers. Capable of managing projects of any scale, the approach being deployed in the United States will serve as a model for similar expansions in TES geographies worldwide.
