Governor Breaks Ground On Facebook’s Data Center


LOS LUNAS – Today, Gov. Susana Martinez broke ground with company executives for Facebook’s massive high-tech data center.

Just a few weeks ago, Martinez announced that Facebook had chosen New Mexico for its latest data center following a nationwide search. The data center will bring thousands of long-term construction positions and an initial investment of $250 million in just the fir14st phase alone – with the potential for multiple phases, which would create more jobs and more investment.

Long-term, the project has the potential to attract other high-tech companies to the state and transform New Mexico into a hub for data center activity.
