CapMan Infra invests in Danish data centre colocation provider Fuzion
CapMan Infra invests in Fuzion, a Danish data centre colocation provider. The deal follows CapMan Infra’s acquisition of Serverius in May 2023 to establish a northern European data centre platform. Fuzion’s current co-owner and CEO Christian Holm Christensen will re-invest in the wider platform and continue in his position as Fuzion’s CEO.
Fuzion is a leading Danish operator of data centres focused on small and medium enterprise clients. The company, established in 2001, offers colocation services supplying space, cooling, electricity, and security for customers. Fuzion currently operates four data centres in the Jutland region and is expanding to a new location in Copenhagen.
This is CapMan Infra’s second investment in a newly established northern European data centre platform providing European-wide connectivity. With data centres positioned in key data centre markets and its strong customer focus, Fuzion will be a valuable addition to the platform, and CapMan sees opportunities in delivering substantial synergies on commercial, technical, and financial aspects, as well as in continuing to support a sustainable transition across operations.
“We are happy to welcome Fuzion to our Northern European data centre platform as it complements our recent investment in Serverius well. We are also very glad to have Christian Holm Christensen co-invest alongside us, showing his strong commitment in delivering on the growth that we see for Fuzion in this market. Christian and his team has positioned Fuzion well for continued growth in Denmark, and Fuzion represents a great fit to our wider northern European platform,” says Harri Halonen, Partner at CapMan Infra.
“I am excited to continue the growth journey with Fuzion and join the wider data centre platform being established by CapMan Infra. I look forward to not only grow Fuzion, which I have great expectations for, but to also build the wider platform, which I see as ideally positioned to target a highly promising market segment at the right time”, says Christian Holm Christensen, owner, and CEO at Fuzion.
The acquisition is CapMan Nordic Infrastructure II fund’s fourth investment, following Skarta Energy, Napier and Serverius.
CapMan Infra was advised by PwC Corporate Finance (M&A), and Horten and Linklaters (legal).
