LiquidStack opens manufacturing facility in Texas to meet surging demand for AI and HPC solutions, allowing them to better serve customers and create jobs

Leading liquid cooling provider LiquidStack announces the opening of a new manufacturing facility and global headquarters in Carrollton, Texas (United States) to better scale liquid cooling production.

The new facility will be essential to meeting high demand for LiquidStack’s expanding portfolio of solutions, including universal Coolant Distribution Units (CDUs) for Direct-to-Chip liquid cooling, single and two phase immersion and modular offerings. With a significant increase in customer demand for liquid cooling, on account of AI, the new facility will enable the company to better meet needs whilst maintaining high-quality services.

Likewise, it will help in LiquidStack’s mission to deliver high performance for data centre and edge computing applications.

Capitalising on rising customer demands

LiquidStack is an industry-leading cooling company that is currently one of the world’s most admired liquid cooling companies for AI, hyperscale, edge and high performance computing (HPC).

The company’s new single-phase liquid cooling solution was introduced towards the end of 2023 and has been the recipient of multiple awards for building the world’s most efficient liquid cooled data centre solutions. It seeks to provide data centres with a powerful and economical option to shift from air cooling to energy-efficient immersion cooling - designed to make data centres more sustainable moving forward.

Currently, the company is witnessing incredibly high demand for liquid cooling solutions globally due to the introduction of ultra-high TDP chips that are driving huge developments in Gen AI. This new facility in Texas will ultimately help the company to better serve a rapidly growing market, whilst creating new local highly-skilled jobs.

LiquidStack’s full range of liquid cooling solutions are manufactured on site, including direct-to-chip CDUs, single phase and two phase immersion cooling solutions and the company’s MacroModular and MicroModular prefabricated data centres. 

The Carrollton, Texas LiquidStack manufacturing facility and headquarters occupies over 20,000 square feet. The company is aggressively hiring production staff with plans to more than triple the size of its current manufacturing team by the end of the year.

The site will also host a service training and demonstration centre for customers and its global network of service engineers and partners.

“As one of the safest communities in the country, Carrollton offers a high level of diversity, amenities, jobs and housing, which made it the perfect site for LiquidStack to build its state-of-the-art, high-efficiency manufacturing centre and headquarters,” said Dan Walker, Plant Manager at LiquidStack.

CEO: “A pivotal moment in LiquidStack’s journey”

LiquidStack CEO Joe Capes tells Data Centre Magazine: “In the rapidly evolving landscape of data centres, the necessity for liquid cooling solutions has become increasingly paramount. The surge in demand for high-density processors, driven notably by applications such as Gen AI and other high-performance computing tasks, presents unprecedented cooling challenges.

“Traditional air-cooled data centres struggle to meet the high heat rejection demands of these processors, necessitating a shift towards liquid cooling technologies.”

He adds: “Stringent environmental regulations mandate data centres to optimise resource consumption, including power and water. Failing to invest in liquid cooling solutions risks not only operational inefficiency but also environmental non-compliance. Therefore, embracing liquid cooling technologies becomes imperative for data centres, enabling them to cool emerging AI workloads and contribute toward environmental sustainability simultaneously.”

When we asked how LiquidStack aims to meet future evolving customer demands, Capes says: “LiquidStack addresses the diverse needs of modern data centres. Inaugurating a state-of-the-art manufacturing, R&D facility, and headquarters in Carrollton, Texas, signifies a pivotal moment in LiquidStack's journey. 

“This investment bolsters production capacity, intensifies research efforts, and enhances training programs, empowering LiquidStack to effectively address short-term requirements and long-term aspirations of discerning clientele. Through sustained growth and unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction, LiquidStack remains at the forefront of shaping the future of liquid cooling solutions for data centres worldwide.”
