Silent-Aire Expands in Nisku, Alberta, Canada
The 105,000 sq. ft. facility located in Nisku includes office space for over 30 personnel and manufacturing teams will be operating 24x7 at full capacity by July.
“Delivering data center technologies and solutions to the world's largest cloud service providers is complex and challenging" stated Lindsey Leckelt, Co-CEO of Silent-Aire, “We recognize that expanding our infrastructure and capacity is vital to meeting our client's most aggressive delivery schedules. The Edmonton region has some of the highest quality skilled trades in the world and we are proud to create over 200 new careers at Silent-Aire”.
The newest facility located in the Nisku Industrial Park is equipped with manufacturing capabilities that are utilized at the other Silent-Aire manufacturing facilities located in Edmonton, Gilbert, Arizona, and Dublin, Ireland.
In April, Silent-Aire opened a 40,000 sq/ft facility for production and inventory teams, “Safety, quality, environmental sustainability and business continuity are part of our corporate culture, and having modern manufacturing facilities is integral to ensuring we can maintain global standards and processes. We strongly believe that if you want to be a leader in the data center technology business, having consistent global standards at all facilities is critical” said Dan Leckelt Co-CEO of Silent-Aire.
Nisku is a growing business and industrial hub that covers 5,050 acres and is home to over 6000 workers and 400 businesses, company officials said. Silent-Aire's neighbor is the new million sq/ft Amazon fulfillment center. Located only 5 minutes from the Edmonton International Airport and 15 minutes from Edmonton's downtown core, this makes it an ideal location for manufacturing and distribution.
“Silent-Aires expansion and new facility are a great example of the huge potential for growth in Nisku and the entire region. As a global leader in data center technology, Silent-Aire is a critical employer in a diverse, fast-growing industry and showcases the bright future in store for our community” said Brad Rutherford, MLA, Leduc-Beaumont.
Edmonton is the global head office for Silent-Aire and a leader in advanced manufacturing of modular data centers. “Economic growth and diversification are going to be key elements to Alberta’s recovery following COVID-19. Silent-Aire’s expansion and growth shows the diverse opportunities and entrepreneurial spirit that have always served Albertans well and will continue to chart a path to future prosperity” Tanya Fir, Minister, Economic Development, Trade and Tourism said.
