SHI International, one of North America’s top 10 largest IT solutions providers, will officially open its new 400,000-square foot Ridge Integration Facility in Piscataway, New Jersey at the end of October.
The facility, staffed by a team of 120, will expand SHI’s ability to support advanced data center solutions, including integration services that combine components from multiple manufacturers into ready-to-deploy rack systems.
With the Ridge Integration Facility joining SHI’s existing 300,000-square foot Integration Center, SHI now operates the two largest IT integration facilities east of Chicago.
The new facility expands SHI’s capacity to power more than 150 racks simultaneously, along with an increased capacity to build and automate integration workflows to increase the efficiency and accuracy of work. Multi-vendor solutions are racked, cabled, burned in, configured, and fully tested prior to delivery.
SHI has provided combined software and hardware Integration Services for more than 20 years to global enterprises, mid-market organizations and state and local government customers.
Over that time, businesses have increasingly sought out pre-deployment configuration and logistics to support end-user and data center solutions across every kind of IT environment.
Our pre-configuration platform increases deployment speed and reduces risk and complexity by constructing solutions in our staging center. The Ridge Integration Facility augments SHI’s investment in technology-related services of the highest quality to support our customer’s unique requirements.
“Customer response to the opening of our first Integration Center in Piscataway was so immediate and positive, it was clear continued expansion would be necessary,” said Thai Lee, President and CEO of SHI International.
“Just three years later, SHI can easily support additional enterprise-size data center infrastructure projects, not just because of our experience and expertise, but because our increased capacity allows us to scale to the needs of any advanced data center initiatives our customers might have.
“This facility is a product of SHI’s continual reinvestment to expand our services to meet customers’ hybrid cloud and datacenter needs.”
