This acquisition is yet another example of how we are delivering on our strategy to improve regional interconnection, particularly to markets that need it most.”

Established in 2007 and headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, Immedion has three additional facilities in SC in Charleston, Columbia, Spartanburg, two in Cincinnati, Ohio, plus sites in Columbus, Indiana, and Asheville, North Carolina.
