DENVER-Ameriquest Mortgage Co., based in Orange County, CA, will open a state-of-the-art data center at an undisclosed location in Douglas County. The 25,000-sf facility is planned to begin operations in March and will create approximately 125 high-quality technology jobs.

Nick Pavlakovich and Matt Gautreau of the Denver office of Cushman & Wakefield and John Gillespie of Newport Commercial Realty Advisors handled the deal. The new data center will support Ameriquest and its affiliates, Argent Mortgage Co. and AMC Mortgage Services. Ameriquest, Argent and AMC Mortgage Services are part of Ameriquest Capital Corp. The location is not being disclosed for security reasons, according to Ameriquest.

Ameriquest is a national retail mortgage company and works directly with consumers. Argent Mortgage is a national wholesale mortgage lender that provides consumer loans through independent mortgage brokers. AMC Mortgage Services is a national mortgage servicing company supporting Ameriquest and Argent.

“Our most important criteria was access to a highly skilled labor force, such as network engineers, systems administrators and computer operators,” says Adam Bass, senior executive vice president of Ameriquest Mortgage “We also sought a centralized location to provide 24/7 operations and better assist customers throughout the US as we grow.”

“Ameriquest’s new facility will bring high quality jobs to our state, and we look forward to an expanded partnership with them as they grow, ” says Brian Vogt, director of the state’s office of economic development and international trade.

Ameriquest currently employs about 200 Colorado residents, and has five branch locations in Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Greenwood Village and Westminster. The new data center will be the organization’s third data center and its first outside of California. It will feature a help desk to support Ameriquest software systems, and answer questions from clients. In addition to the 25,000-sf data center, people close to the deal tell GlobeSt.com that Ameriquest leased more than another 50,000 sf for office and expansion space.

“We’re confident the company will find an outstanding pool of candidates from which to select their workforce,” says Melanie Worley, chair of the Douglas County board of county commissioners. “It is our hope Ameriquest will have a long-lasting presence in Douglas County.”

Trish Layton, vice president of the Southeast Business Partnership says that she agrees that “Ameriquest will benefit from our outstanding workforce and we look forward to the positive impact their operation will have on our local economy.”
