CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Linda McMahon, head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, toured Alpha Technologies’ South Charleston data center Tuesday, and it may not be long until the company is able to show off a second data center.
Prior to McMahon’s visit, among efforts by President Donald Trump’s administration to tout the benefits of federal tax cuts, Alpha Technologies CEO Doug Tate said the Hurricane-based company is planning to build a new data center in Huntington.
To go along with that facility — expected to be smaller than its South Charleston data center — Alpha is aiming to build 50 miles of fiber from Charleston to Huntington via U.S. 60, said Charlie Dennie, vice president of government relations and special projects.
