NTT FACILITIES, INC. Announced Investment to Electronic Environments Corporation that Bolsters Mission Critical Lifecycle Services (MCLS)
NTT FACILITIES, INC. (NTTF), a leader in designing and constructing state-of-the-art information facilities that support communications and Internet infrastructure, today announced its acquisition of a majority stake in Electronic Environments Corporation (EEC), a leader in mission critical facility management in the United States, to enhance service offerings and assist customers in maximizing data center performance in the U.S.
For nearly three decades, EEC has successfully helped thousands of telecom and data center clients maximize the productivity of their mission critical infrastructure. Boasting a 98% renewal rate, EEC, with its Mission Critical Lifecycle Services (MCLS) approach, views data centers as a single entity, utilizing a holistic approach to the design, construction and maintenance of data center facilities and mission critical equipment. Through this unique approach, which incorporates five interrelated areas of the mission critical facilities lifecycle - planning, design management, construction, operations & maintenance and assessments - EEC has helped its customers reduce service costs and achieved important objectives such as availability and Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) targets.
Bringing NTTF's valuable financial, engineering and R&D resources, this partnership will enable and accelerate EEC offerings, allowing the company to scale and increase the speed of its successful formula including expanding its various benefits to a broader U.S. market, and will further enable EEC's ability to support increased reliability, improved capacity, reduced costs and increased energy efficiency within customers' mission critical sites. This acquisition is part of NTTF's plan to accelerate its expansion into the global market to provide integrated and comprehensive facility services ranging from consulting and designing through to construction and maintenance, by accumulating business bases that offer a full line of engineering capabilities.
Satoshi Usui, NTT FACILITIES, INC. Senior Vice President stated "Throughout our search for a partner, it was necessary to discover a company that holds the same values and mission as NTTF, and we were finally able to find this within EEC."
"EEC and its Mission Critical Lifecycle Services provide unique approaches that, like NTTF, focus on providing high value to customers through a passion for mission critical uptime," explained Masahiko Kanai, NTT FACILITIES USA, INC. President & CEO.
"EEC is excited to become a member of the NTTF GROUP," said Ken Rapoport, EEC Founder and CEO. "The NTTF GROUP can offer a multitude of benefits to our organization, bringing valuable insights into technologies that can improve data center performance such as 380V high-voltage DC infrastructure, solar power and fuel cell infrastructure."
NTTF acquired Unitrio Technology Limited in Thailand in 2013 and Pro-Matrix Pte Ltd. in Singapore in 2014. This is the third acquisition for NTTF outside of Japan. As part of further plans that NTTF envisages for its global expansion, it will continue to focus on architectural and electrical engineering, and also intends to leverage its knowledge and experience to provide renewable energy solutions such as solar power systems in the near future.
