Consecutive Significant Revenue Growth Earns Michigan Data Center Company Recognition from Local Economic Development Agency Ann Arbor SPARK; More Extensive Growth on the Horizon
Online PR News – 19-September-2013 – Ann Arbor, MI – Online Tech, the leader in secure and compliant data center hosting (www.onlinetech.com/compliant-hosting/hipaa-compliant-hosting/overviewget="_blank" class="highlight_link" rel="nofollow">http://www.onlinetech.com/compliant-hosting/hipaa-compliant-hosting/overview), named the winner of a FastTrack Award for outstanding business success. Ann Arbor SPARK, a local economic development agency, honored the winners at an event Friday, November 2. To be eligible, Washtenaw County-based companies must demonstrate a 20 percent revenue growth rate for three successive years.
It’s the fifth time Online Tech has received the FastTrack Award since 2006.
Online Tech has averaged more than 30 percent annual growth since 2003, when new owners made significant investments in its data center and network infrastructure to make it one of Michigan's largest managed data center operators. The company was founded in 1994 as one of the state’s first Internet Service Providers.
That track record of growth got a boost in mid-September when Online Tech received a $20 million investment from News-Press & Gazette Company to help it expand into new markets. The company – which currently operates two data centers in Ann Arbor and one in Flint – plans to add four more data centers to the company’s portfolio over the next 24 months.

“Online Tech has built the leading data center operating company in Michigan and did so during some very difficult economic times,” Online Tech CEO Yan Ness said. “Our people stepped up to the plate, worked a little harder and we’ve earned the loyal support of an expanding list of great clients around the Great Lakes region. With our recent investment, we look forward to continued growth as we expand into additional markets across the Midwest.”
Spurred by the impending growth, Online Tech recently added four members to its management team. Director of Business Development Michael Kowal and Director of Human Resources Deb Webster were hired by Online Tech while Director of Sales Don Trojan and Systems Support Manager Steven Aiello were promoted from within - www.onlinetech.com/news/press-releases/2012/online-tech-announces-additions-to-its-management-teamget="_blank" class="highlight_link" rel="nofollow">http://www.onlinetech.com/news/press-releases/2012/online-tech-announces-additions-to-its-management-team>.
