ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A St. Louis-based web hosting company has been named one of the fastest-growing businesses of its kind in the country.
Contegix started ten years ago and marketing director Tom Prindiville says that as more companies need help with data storage and management, the company has grown.
“Over the past five years, we’ve grown it 430 percent,” he says.
Contegix recently moved into a new headquarters in downtown St. Louis, a building Prindiville calls unique.
“We’re operating out of a state-of-the-art data center that really can’t be touched in the region and that sort of infrastructure is what’s been missing on a large scale in St. Louis,” he said.
Prindiville says the company chose to stay in the area rather than move to Silicon Valley because the cost of living is much lower and because there is a large talent pool in St. Louis. He says he has seen a boom in tech starups in St. Louis and predicts it will continue to gain steam.
HostReview.com, a site that ranks and rates such companies, gave Contegix the “fastest-growing” title.
