UK-based company to enhance UK and Europe service presence

CLEVELAND, OH, May 15, 2017 – Park Place Technologies announced today that it has purchased Prestige Data Centre Solutions, a UK-based IT infrastructure solutions provider located just outside Birmingham, England. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed at the time of the press release.

“I welcome the Prestige team to the Park Place family,” said Ed Kenty, Chairman and CEO of Park Place Technologies. “Prestige’s nearly three decades of exemplary IT data center service will complement Park Place’s world-class support model as we expand and grow our client base throughout the UK, Europe, and beyond.”

Acquiring Prestige Data Centre Solutions will allow Park Place to enhance their experienced, premier team of engineers to service data centers across the EMEA region. Park Place previously opened a European headquarters location in London in May of 2015.

Prestige’s Co-Founders, John and Elaine Dawson, James Coyle, and Mark Jones will be leaving Prestige Systems entirely to Park Place and joining other ventures in the UK. “Elaine, James, Mark, and I have full confidence in leaving Prestige in the capable hands of Park Place” said John Dawson. “With Park Place, Prestige will be able to continue to grow to the next level and deliver the best service for IT data centers around the world.”
