Quest Technology Management is building a new operations center in Roseville, a major expansion for the fast-growing Sacramento consulting and data-storage firm.
The company is leasing a vacant building on the Hewlett-Packard Co. campus to house a 120,000-square-foot data center scheduled to open this summer. Quest will continue to occupy its original data center at McClellan Park, which is a little more than half the size of the Roseville location.
The expansion was driven by customer demand, said Quest’s president and chief executive, Tim Burke.
“We will be out of space in our building,” he said. “Our building at McClellan – we will have that filled in six to 12 months.”
Vacancies have popped up at HP’s campus as the venerable computer company has scaled back its Roseville presence substantially in the past decade.
Burke said he doesn’t know how many workers will be hired to operate the new center. But he noted that Quest’s employment has been growing at 20 percent a year. The privately held company, which brings in about $150 million a year in revenue, currently employs about 180 workers in Sacramento.
Quest stores and manages vast reams of data, and provides other tech services, for an array of corporate customers. Burke said the Roseville building will start as a data center but could accommodate other purposes.
Quest is one of several companies that have made the Sacramento region a data-management hub in recent years.
