OVH to build high-tech campus near headquarters

Monday 2 February 2015 | 00:55 CET | News
French hosting services provider and network operator OVH will invest EUR 40 million in building a very modern high-tech campus hosting over 1,500 high-level staff near its headquarters in Roubaix, writes La Tribune. Chairman Henryk Klaba said the campus would include R&D, testing labs and even a business incubator.

Klabla said he did not care about procedures, his competitors are international companies like Amazon and Google. He cannot waste his time and must move very quickly. OVH
