PHOENIX– Comarch, a global software house and IT solutions company, announced plans Tuesday to build its first data center in the U.S. in Mesa.

The 32,000-square-foot facility will consolidate the company’s existing services in Canada and the United States, and the company plans to expand its business to more North and South American companies, officials said in a press release.

Comarch officials decided that Mesa would house the company’s flagship United States facility due to its available infrastructure and business-friendly practices.

“We chose Mesa due to it progressing as an up-and-coming technology region, reasonable energy prices, existing infrastructure, lack of natural disasters and business-friendly opt-in processes which reduced timelines for go-live,” Louis Rossi, Comarch’s director of business development for North America, said in the release.

“The Mesa Office of Economic Development team was also a positive factor as they created a support system to make it easier to navigate an otherwise complicated endeavor for an international company.”

Since the company was founded in the ’90’s, the global technology solutions company has provided IT support in industries such as travel, retail and health care.

Officials expect construction to begin this month, with the facility being finished in mid-2022.
