Grant Shapps MP Visits Netwise Hosting

After our official opening back in May 2012 by Mayor of London Boris Johnson, it had been a fair while since a VIP guest passed through our South London offices.

Grant Shapps and Paul Scully visit Netwise Hosting SouthThis week saw another Government heavyweight visit our award-winning data centre, this time being Grant Shapps MP, Conservative Party Co-Chairman. His visit to our facility formed part of an on-going Government initiative to encourage more young people into business, with Netwise Hosting’s unique story being used as an example of success.

Paul Scully, who is running for local MP of Sutton and Cheam – the affluent home borough of Netwise Hosting’s facility – also visited the site. Scully has been a long-time supporter of Netwise Hosting, and hopes to use the business as a glowing example of successful enterprise in Sutton.

Not only did the two visitors and their associates gain a better understanding for the business during their morning with the management team – they also enjoyed a full tour of the data centre, a first for many in the group. Emphasis was placed on the sites use of modern, green technologies to deliver some of London’s most affordable colocation space.

  1. Nice report. Must be good to have MP’s wanting to visit! I suppose the aspect of colocation that makes the most sense to business owners is the potential to cut costs considerably. By hosting all of your equipment in one location, you are able to heavily reduce outgoings on utilities and maintenance. Nice to see you use green technology too.
