STACK INFRASTRUCTURE (“STACK” or the “Company”), the data center company built from the ground up to address the technology infrastructure needs of rapidly scaling enterprises and hyperscale businesses, today announced plans for expansion in Portland, a leading U.S. data center market where the Company has deep roots and a history of market leadership. This planned expansion follows STACK’s recent announcement of its plans to build a new facility at its Chicago data center campus and continues the Company’s corporate strategy to bring additional capacity to support the growth of its clients.

STACK intends to break ground on a significant, long-term expansion in Hillsboro. The near-term campus additions will provide more than 60MW of additional critical capacity and, when combined with STACK’s established Hillsboro facilities, bring the Company’s total capacity in this growing market to nearly 100MW. STACK has strong and durable ties to Hillsboro’s data center market, where it developed its first data center in 2012.
“STACK has a rich heritage in Hillsboro, where we’ve built some of our most important and enduring client relationships,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer of STACK. “We view this as a high-priority market for ongoing investment, and this is only the beginning of the presence STACK intends to build as we rapidly scale our critical capacity.”
The commercial and natural advantages to operating in Hillsboro, including the technology-friendly business environment and access to key international markets serviced by subsea cable, are key factors driving STACK to invest further in the market.
“Portland is a key market for our clients and, consequently, for STACK,” said Matt VanderZanden, Chief Strategy Officer of STACK. “Its unique combination of attributes that are ever-growing priorities in our industry—proximity to key user bases, excellent network and electrical infrastructure, and sources of renewable energy—make it a destination of choice as enterprise, hyperscale, and cloud companies implement their growth initiatives.”
STACK is committed to being the data center industry leader in building and delivering flexible critical infrastructure solutions that meet and support the complex requirements of enterprise and hyperscale deployments. The Company’s offering includes hyperscale campuses and build-to-suit data centers (“HYPER STACK™”), immediately available wholesale colocation and private data suites (“READY STACK™”), and powered shell options (“POWER STACK™”).
