Turning Rock Partners Provides Growth Expansion Financing for Hivelocity and Colohouse Merger

Turning Rock Partners, a private investment firm based in New York, announced the closing of a $70 million expansion financing to support the merger of Hivelocity and Colohouse, a leading provider of colocation, cloud, bare metal, hosting and data services for a diversified set of customers. Existing shareholders also participated in the new round of capital. The combined business will feature more than 40 data center locations and will be headquartered in Tampa, FL.
