"Our strategy is to expand across Canada while building capacity and a greater depth of products, all in the service of giving customers more," said Todd Coleman, President and CEO of eStruxture, in a statement. "And with our enhanced balance sheet courtesy of our new invested capital and debt facility, our position is stronger than ever."

Last month, eStruxture secured $180 million in committed capital to expand its existing data centers and acquire new facilities.

In December, the company unveiled its purchase of a 156,000 square-foot printing facility in Montreal with plans to create a new 30 megawatts power capacity data center. The new data center is scheduled to open in the second half of 2018.

The purchase of Kolotek expands the number of data center sites to three as it now supports nearly 900 customers from over 30 countries globally. All three sites will be connected with high-speed network access and provide integration of customer infrastructure across all sites.

The Kolotek acquisition will also improve multi-site and disaster recovery abilities while adding to eStruxture's pool of network providers, according to the company.
