Data Specialties Inc. Celebrates Thirty Years of Designing and Building Data Centers

Last week, we announced our thirtieth year of business as a leader in Data Center design/build services and preventative maintenance. Thank you to our employees, partners and customers for helping us achieve this milestone.

Data Specialties was founded in 1991 by Ric Maxson and Phil Rafferty. “The Data Center industry has changed significantly over the past thirty years, and we have been here for every step of the evolution. It’s exciting to celebrate this significant milestone,” said Phil Rafferty, President and Co-founder of DSI. “Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated team of Data Center experts, we are proud to celebrate 30 years of building and renovating Data Centers and enabling a diverse group of Data Center owners and operators to manage their facilities safely, effectively and efficiently.”

Since 1991, we have expanded our knowledge and experience through many projects such as:

  • The Design/Build of a new Data Center for e-retailer Newegg that had outgrown its existing Data Center.
  • The upgrade of an existing Data Center to meet current power and data needs and allow for future growth for emergency operations for the City of Chico, California Police Department.
  • The major expansion of an existing Data Center for an international global technology services company supporting two major automotive manufacturers, Hyundai and Kia, using scalable, modular infrastructure and coordinating for improved power service.

In addition, we have partnered with IBM Global Services and have provided them with support for many Data Center projects. “For more than the last 20 years, we have had a valuable partnership with DSI,” said Dave McCoy, Principal, IBM Data Center Services. “DSI’s professional team has provided expert services for all of the Data Center projects that we have worked on together, and we look forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come.”

DSI’s designs deliver the reliability demanded today, and the scalability and flexibility to accommodate any future moves, additions or changes. We are grateful for our thirty years of business and are looking forward to future projects.
