SAN JOSE, CA-Supermicro Computer Inc., a locally based public company is acquiring a building adjacent to its existing headquarters. The maker of serverboards and server systems will pay $11.34 million for a 89,981-sf, single-story R&D building at 880 Fox Lane, which sits south of the Montague Expressway between Oakland Road and Interstate 880.

The building is adjacent to its headquarters at 980 Fox Ave. and two other buildings the company owns in the immediate area. The seller is listed as CN Fox LLC, which is represented by Cawley Fund Advisors of Dallas. The sale is expected to close escrow in mid October.

Supermicro’s equipment is used in data center deployment, high-performance computing, high-end workstations, storage networks and standalone server installations. Company CEO Charles Liang says the acquisition will facilitate greater operational efficiency.

“This facility will allow Supermicro to expand our manufacturing facilities as well as provide additional office space for our growing R&D and SG&A needs,” he says.
