“The Gdańsk facility is an important point on the map of our data centers,” said Monika Ros-Gruszczyk, member of the management board of the 3S Group companies. “We believe that the Tri-City with the Pomeranian region has great economic potential. For several months, we have been developing our own structures here and building a fiber optic network. The server room was our missing link in this region. We are confident that our IT resources can support the development of regional business.”

Founded in 2011 and owned by P4/Play, 3S has six data centers across Katowice (x3), Warsaw, Kraków, and Bytom. Last year the company said it plans on acquiring and expanding facilities in Warsaw, Gdańsk, and Wrocław. The company is developing another facility on its Katowice campus that is due live next year.

“Another modern technology company has appeared on the Tri-City map. The decision of the 3S Group to build a data center in the Tri-City improves the conditions for the development of local IT companies and will be an additional incentive for companies in this sector to choose a location in Pomerania,” added Mieczysław Struk, Marshal of Pomeranian Voivodeship.
