UK data centre services operator Pulsant has been acquired by Antin Infrastructure Partners, which has bought it from joint owners Oak Hill Capital and Scottish Equity Partners.
Pulsant operates a portfolio of ten data centres across the UK, delivering scalable cloud, colocation and networking services. Its locations include Reading, Milton Keynes, Newcastle and Edinburgh.
Antin Infrastructure Partners is a private equity firm specialising in critical infrastructure – it has also invested in CityFibre in the UK and Eurofiber in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Following the completion of the acquisition, Pulsant CEO Rob Coupland and CFO Brad Petzer will work with Antin to implement a growth strategy underpinned by further investment to “continue developing the company’s existing platform and network footprint”, said Antin.
Coupland said: “In partnership with Antin, we now look forward to delivering on the considerable potential we see over the coming years, driven by our cloud and edge capabilities, our regional presence and our ability to deliver customised solutions. The new investment from Antin will help us continue to focus on our core portfolio of colocation and hybrid cloud”.
