UKFast Becomes NICEIC Approved

Manchester-based hosting and colocation firm UKFast has become the only data centre owner and operator in the UK to be an approved NICEIC electrical contractor.

Employing fully qualified, in-house design and engineering staff, the accreditation enables the cloud and colocation firm to undertake electrical installation and maintenance within its data centres and property portfolio, delivering critical services to thousands of servers without the need for third party contractors.

UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: “This is another step toward our goal of owning every aspect of our supply chain ensuring that we are in total control of the service we offer our clients. Having this accreditation further cements our commitment to quality and speed as now we can be certain of the response times and quality of the work our electricians carry out.

“No other data centre in the country is taking these steps. UKFast is committed to technical excellence and delivering the best quality of service possible to our clients, with our ever-growing portfolio of accreditations.”

The hosting and colocation firm recently made its first acquisition, completing a deal for UK arm of American firm BurstNet, adding 25% to its client base and continuing the firm’s growth in new areas.
