From a single data center to one of the largest national providers
QTS is powered by our people and built on a platform of mega data centers. Over the past 10 years, QTS has grown exponentially to become one of the largest and most successful data center providers. Starting with the purchase of a single small data center in Overland Park, Kansas in 2003 by QGC, Chad Williams laid the foundation for QTS. In 2005, QTS was formally established as a stand alone entity with the purchase of the Atlanta-Suwanee mega data center. In less than ten years, the company has established a leadership position in this growing industry by owning, operating or managing an international portfolio with more than 5 million square feet of data center space. Mr. Williams leveraged his experience developing, owning and managing mission-critical facilities and began strategically acquiring data centers with the goal of building a world-class, fully integrated data center services platform.
The growth has been steady and impressive
In 2005, the company acquired QTS Atlanta-Suwanee, and the 370,000 square foot data center soon became the flagship location and headquarters of QTS renowned Operations Service Center. Over the last 10 years, QTS has continued to grow through a number of mergers and acquisitions across the country.
