When have you ever heard this from a prospective or relocated business rep about Duluth? >>>>
*Said Lehrman: “We found, from our very first meeting in Duluth, that the community understood our* *industry and understood what we needed to move forward with the project. And they delivered* *everything we needed to move forward.”*
Is Duluth finally getting its act together with business recruitment? Let’s hope so.

FYI – Stockholm, Sweden is home to a large number of data centers (AKA co-location centers) thanks to climate, large # of IT businesses and —– geology. Many are built into the bedrock. With all the exposed bedrock in Duluth, this is an attribute that should not be overlooked, in so much as climate, Duluth has a geological advantage over Tucson, Boise or Iowa. Maybe it takes a Duluth-based developer to propose this.

Exposed bedrock AND the fact that there hasn’t been an earthquake here in about a billion years.

It is nice to live in an area that is relatively immune to natural disasters, save for the occasional deluge or Blizzard.
But that makes me think, there is all this talk of the 16″ thick concrete walls, what about the roof?

There is at least one local company who dropped the ball on opportunity to run this data center hosting business… evidently they couldn’t see the forest through the trees.
Progress, people, get used to it.
