Strategic Financing and New Leadership Position 1025Connect for Accelerated Growth
October 28, 2019 – AM Property Holding Corp. announced the successful completion of a $21 million credit facility for 1025OCR, its 200,000 square-foot Technology Center located at 1025 Old Country Road in Westbury, New York. The transaction was led by Metropolitan Bank and Steel Harbor as part of a recapitalization and strategic financing program to drive accelerated growth at 1025OCR and 1025Connect, the premier carrier-neutral interconnection facility with direct access to submarine cable systems and terrestrial fiber networks located at 1025OCR.
“This financing positions us to drive accelerated growth for our 1025OCR technology campus and capitalize on the robust demand that we are seeing for colocation and interconnection at 1025Connect,” stated Jeff Wasserman, Chairman of AM Property Holding. “In addition to the substantial investments that we are making in facilities and infrastructure, we have significantly enhanced the leadership team at 1025Connect with the recent appointments of Frank Zachmann as Executive Director and John Danko as Director of Business Development.”
1025OCR will use the new capital to improve its facility and the operations of the Technology Center. The company plans to construct a new building entrance with direct and controlled access to 1025Connect inside the building with a new main office; add capacity and improve resiliency of its power and cooling infrastructure; and enhance the security access control system and protocols to support industry required certifications.
