BMIT invests €1,000,000 in a new data centre

BMIT Ltd, Malta’s largest data centre services provider has just made a direct investment of €1,000,000 in additional state of the art data centre capacity, to provide new co-location and hosting facilities as well as to re-inforce its position as the leading provider of data centre and cloud services. The data centre was inaugurated by Dr. Edward Zammit Lewis, Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth, in the presence of Joseph Cuschieri, Executive Chairman of the LGA. The data centre will provide the essential infrastructure to local and international companies, which are increasingly finding BMIT as a reliable and secure provider of data centre, cloud and managed services.

Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth Edward Zammit Lewis welcomed such investment and stated that this is in line with the Government's vision and its digital agenda. “Companies like BMIT are the sort of investment that Government is attracting. BMIT’s investment came during a period when another three gaming companies invested in Malta and during the time when the government is updating the gaming regulations,” said Honourable Edward Zammit Lewis. In the coming days the nation will also experience the revised Malta’s digital strategy. This is the kind of commitment the Government is aiming for this industry in order that it continues creating economic growth and sustainability for this county,” Dr Edward Zammit Lewis concluded.

This investment is part of our growth strategy to maintain the position as the leading, innovative and largest data centre and cloud services provider on the island,” said Christian Sammut, Chief Executive Officer at BMIT Ltd. “With this expansion, which is part of a multi-million investment programme over 3 years, we are investing to meet the demand and requirements of an increasing number of new and existing customers in a wide range of industries.
