Antin acquires Pulsant ahead of expansion phase

Antin Infrastructure Partners has acquired Pulsant from Oak Hill Capital and Scottish Equity Partners, owners of the cloud comms firm since 2014.

Pulsant operates a network of 10 data centres across the UK and has over 1,000 enterprise and public sector customers.

Rob Coupland (pictured), CEO at Pulsant, said: “We now look forward to delivering on the considerable potential we see over the coming years, driven by our cloud and edge capabilities, our regional presence and our ability to deliver customised solutions. 

"The new investment will help us continue to focus on our core portfolio of colocation and hybrid cloud, while also bringing scalable and high capacity coverage to businesses across the whole of the UK through the building of our nationwide edge computing platform.”

Simon Söder, Partner at Antin Infrastructure Partners, added: “The pandemic has reinforced the importance of reliable and flexible infrastructure for connectivity, storage and processing of data given the prevalence of remote working and as more businesses shift to cloud-based solutions. 

"Through its network of regional data centres Pulsant is positioned to support businesses across the UK with flexible data centre and cloud infrastructure solutions.”
