ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwired - April 24, 2013) - For the third time in four years, Online Tech LLC has been honored with a DiSciTech award from Corp! magazine for being a leading Michigan company in the digital, scientific and technology fields.
The magazine annually honors Michigan companies and educational organizations that are leading the way in science and technology through innovation, research and applied science as well as those who are using digital technology to promote, improve or enhance their enterprises.
Online Tech was one of 40 companies -- 21 in the Science & Technology Category -- to accept a 2013 award at a recent event at Oakland Community College. Corp! previously honored Online Tech, Michigan's leader in secure and compliant data center hosting, in 2010 and 2012.
"We're very proud of the DiSciTech award and all recognition we receive because Online Tech built the leading data center operating company in Michigan during some very difficult economic times," co-CEO Yan Ness said. "Our people stepped up to the plate, worked a little harder and we've earned the loyal support of an expanding list of great clients around the Great Lakes region."
Already the largest multi-tenant data center operator in Michigan, Online Tech got a boost to its steady growth (averaging more than 30 percent annual growth since 2003) when News-Press & Gazette Company invested $20 million to help it expand into new markets. There are plans to open four new data centers over the next 24 months, joining the company's two facilities in Ann Arbor and one in Flint.
"With our recent investment, we look forward to continued growth as we expand into additional markets across the Midwest," Ness said.
