“We need to be where our customers are,” Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer Technologies, said in a statement. “When it came time to locate our North American division, Ashburn quickly rose to the top of the list. The amount of critical infrastructure and the diversity of operators make it the perfect location for Submer.”
The new location, which will be a subsidiary company incorporated as Submer Inc., will house the tech company’s North America administrative, support and operations teams. Submer’s U.S. headquarters will offer data centers its immersion cooling platform that submerges servers in a proprietary dielectric fluid to improve cooling efforts from energy efficiency to cost and space.
“We are committed to a welcoming environment that promotes business growth, focused on innovative technology companies in the telecommunications and datacenter industries,” said Buddy Rizer, executive director of economic development for Loudoun County, in the press release. “As a leader in hyper-efficient immersion cooling systems, Submer is a great fit for that vision and we are excited to have them join us here in Loudoun County.”
Founded in 2015, Submer has raised $3.1 million in funding, according to Crunchbase.
