PITTSBURGH, July 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black Box, the trusted digital partner for enterprises across the globe, today announced that it is partnering with one of the world's most renowned and prominent social media organizations on its global data center expansion program. The potential data center work could total $300 million or more for Black Box—making it the largest customer and deal in the company's history.

Black Box's Commercial Services business unit was awarded this U.S.-based data center infrastructure and connectivity project following several years of successful data center work in Europe for the most well-known social media company in the world.   

This will be one of the largest projects ever for Black Box and promises to be only the tip of the iceberg. This first award for the almost million square foot data center is worth more than $10 million and marks the beginning of a five to ten year strategic relationship with the social media giant, which is planning a very aggressive global data center expansion program. Conversations are already underway between Black Box and the social media company to add additional site locations and data centers. The potential work could total $300 million or more for Black Box.

In the data center, Black Box is responsible for the rack and stack of network equipment, installation of the infrastructure hardware, and all of the structured cabling, which includes more than 100 miles of fiber optic cabling. Black Box will deploy a dedicated project team ramping up to seventy plus team members for the first project and could see that number grow to over five hundred team members as the program reaches its potential.  

In this highly competitive environment, Black Box won the data center project by separating itself through its holistic governance plan and approach, with an emphasis on efficiency and scalability. The approach enables both parties to flex up and down to meet the demands of the data center growth plans.

"This strategic partnership has the potential to be one of the largest in Black Box history," said Joel Trammell, Black Box President and CEO. "The ability to deploy sophisticated data center solutions leverages our intelligent digital edge strategy. Our global scale, repeatable and predictable governance framework, deep technical expertise, and core values alignment differentiated us from our competition and were instrumental in our selection. We look forward to a successful project delivery for this first U.S. data center, and are excited to continue and expand our journey together with our partner."

The company today says it's been awarded a $10M-plus data center project for "the most well-known social media company in the world," with potential data center work that it says could total $300M or more -- the largest customer and deal in company history.

The deal marks a five- to 10-year relationship between the two, Black Box says.

"This strategic partnership has the potential to be one of the largest in Black Box history," Joel Trammell, Black Box president and CEO, said in a statement. "The ability to deploy sophisticated data center solutions leverages our intelligent digital edge strategy. Our global scale, repeatable and predictable governance framework, deep technical expertise, and core values alignment differentiated us from our competition and were instrumental in our selection. We look forward to a successful project delivery for this first U.S. data center, and are excited to continue and expand our journey together with our partner."

Washington County-based Black Box Corp. said it has been awarded a $10 million contract from a social media organization for digital infrastructure work, including more than 100 miles of fiber optic cabling within an Ohio data center that is almost a million square feet in size.

The company, which describes the contract as “only the tip of the iceberg,” has made regulatory filings in recent weeks noting that its future is uncertain. 

The new agreement — which the company said in its official announcement was reached with the “most well-known social media company in the world” — marks the start of a five- to 10-year relationship that could ultimately be worth $300 million to Black Box. That would be the biggest deal ever for the struggling Lawrence-based company as the social media company carries out a “very aggressive global data center expansion program.”

Black Box President and CEO Joel Trammell said in an interview Friday he was not permitted to identify the company or the city where the data center is located. The work would begin “pretty much immediately,” he said. “We’re ramping up.

*************ALL OF THE  REPORTS, INCLUDING THE PRESS RELEASE, COULD NOT STATE THE MEGA GIANT SOCIAL MEDIA PARTNER*******

******HERES WHY******

The contract award followed several years of data center work for the same company in Sweden, Mr. Trammell said in the interview.
