Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Los Angeles, QuadraNet says it has more than 1,000 active customers and facilities located in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New Jersey, Reston, St. Louis, and Seattle.

Terms of the deal were not shared.

Edge Centres’ CTO, Kiarash Jahangiri, has been appointed as QuadraNet’s CEO to oversee operations.

“Edge Centres’ bold series of acquisitions made over the last year will now be unified under the QuadraNet brand. Stepping into the role of CEO at one of the fastest growing companies in the US data center and server market is a great privilege,” said Jahangiri.

Jonathan Eaves, founder and CEO of Edge Centres, said: “I spent the first six months of our expansion into America acquiring facilities; I have spent the last six months acquiring tech and talent. This combination allows us to grow rapidly, seamlessly, and sustainably while we maintain the speed for which Edge Centres is known.”

Edge Centres said it plans to merge QuadraNet’s platform in Los Angeles with the facilities it acquired in its purchase of LA-based Multacom in July 2023, and claimed the acquisition will result in more than 100,000 sq ft (9,300 sqm) of white space in California alone.

The company also has a Point of Presence (PoP) in Coresite’s One Wilshire carrier hotel data center in Los Angeles, California, adjacent to Quadranet’s Los Angeles data center.

In light of the acquisition, Australian Edge Centres now operates 14 data centers across nine US metro areas, including St Louis, Kentucky; Northern Virginia; and Dallas Fort Worth, Texas. The company acquired US cloud firm CloneCone earlier this year after initially announcing plans for US expansion in April 2022.

The company also operates data centers across Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Thailand.
