QTS Data Centers Plans York County, South Carolina, Operations

QTS Data Centers, a global provider of colocation data center infrastructure and related services, plans to establish data center operations in York County, South Carolina. The company expects to invest $1 billion.

The new campus, located near Hands Mill Highway and Campbell Road, will utilize carbon-free power when feasible and leverage industry-leading, water-saving technology that uses zero water for cooling its customers’ environments.

“QTS is pleased to announce our expansion in York County, SC with a new campus that supports growth for QTS and its partners. Our investment in York County is consistent with QTS’ strategy of securing access to infrastructure at scale in strategic markets to support accelerating demand from our hyperscale, enterprise, and government customer base. We look forward to partnering with the community along with local and state leadership, further enhancing South Carolina as a leading technology center,” QTS Chief Executive Officer Chad Williams said.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development awarded a $200,000 Set-Aside grant to York County to assist with the costs of site preparation.

“Digital infrastructure is critical as our reliance on technology increases. We’re proud that high-tech companies like QTS Data Centers recognize that South Carolina’s assets will enable sustained success and look forward to the impact of this $1 billion investment in York County and beyond,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M.
