UK Government Welcomes Interxion’s Commitment to Driving the Capital’s Digital Economy
INTERXION HOLDING NV today announced that it is expanding its London campus, with a £30 million investment in a third London data centre, known as ‘LON3’.
Scheduled to open in 2018, LON3 will add 1,800 sqm to Interxion’s uniquely located central London data centre campus, situated between the Square Mile and Tech City. The campus has become a strategic location for businesses looking to interconnect mission critical services in central London. Home to key players in the financial services, digital media, connectivity and cloud services sectors, Interxion plays a vital role in enabling London’s digital economy.
Minister of State for Trade and Investment, The Rt Hon Greg Hands MP said regarding the announcement: “The UK’s world-leading tech market is the largest in Europe and my department is working with international firms like Interxion who are looking to take advantage of its strengths. Following the recent commitment of other major global firms to expand their London offices, Interxion’s investment in a new London data centre is welcome news that will generate high-skilled jobs and further strengthen the infrastructure of our digital economy.”
Deputy Mayor of London for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, said: “London has always been at the forefront of innovation in tech and finance. Interxion’s new data centre between London’s Tech City and the City of London will help bring these industries together, as well as creating the infrastructure needed for international organisations based in the capital.” Agrawal adds: ““London is open for business and investment from all over the world, and we look forward to helping more businesses grow.”
