Chayora opens new office in Shanghai to support continued infrastructure expansion



Shanghai

The new office is located in the heart of Pudong, the central Shanghai business district, directly across the Huangpu River from The Bund.

China-based data centre operator Chayora Limited has announced the opening of a new office in Shanghai as it continues its expansion into the expanding digital infrastructure market in China.

It will provide the main base for and support Chayora’s recently appointed Executive Vice President, Sales for China, Shining Xiao and Chayora’s Executive GM for the Eastern Region, Kevin Sun – supporting sales and new developments in China.

Chayora continues to expand its footprint across multiple locations in mainland China and last year opened its office in central Beijing to provide local support to the company’s data centre campus being constructed in nearby Tianjin.

“Chayora is making significant investments and is expanding rapidly within China and we celebrate the opening of this new office which will be a springboard for our establishment of data centre facilities in Shanghai and enhance the support for our staff based there,” said Oliver Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Chayora. 

“Shanghai, with its adjacent provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang, is a key location for the international finance sector, for both international and domestic cloud operators and for other key customer sectors we support, and we are delighted to open this office to join our network of other operating locations.”

Last year, the China-based data centre provider secured a $180m Series C funding from Actis Asia Real Estate Fund.

Actis and Chayora both reached an agreement for AAREF and other Actis managed funds to invest up to a further $180m equity in Chayora’s Series C round of funding and has completed the $64m first tranche of the investment.
