Web hosting company 1&1 Internet Inc., a unit of United Internet, is opening a new data center in Lenexa, KS. The 55,000-square-foot facility will house 40,000 servers. 1&1 specializes in hosting web sites for small to mid-sized companies and individuals. The company currently operates two facilities in New York and New Jersey. The new center will accommodate all new customers. The company’s headquarters will remain in Chesterbrook, PA.

The company is spending $9 million to develop the facility, scheduled to open next year, and expects to invest several million dollars more next year.

“Opening another location besides our headquarters in the Philadelphia area underscores the importance of our U.S. business,” says Andreas Gauger, chairman.
