Web hosting provider Liquid Web announced on Thursday that over the past year it has more than doubled its head count and grown its revenues by more than 60 percent, a trend that looks to continue well into 2008, says the company.

For the past 12 months Liquid Web says it has consistently broken its own monthly revenue records and currently employs 107 people, adding approximately 10 to 12 new employees every month.

Liquid Web has specifically hired and trained more than 70 new "Heroic Support Engineers" in 2007 to support its rapidly expanding global and local client base, which includes TechSmith Corporation, Neogen Corporation and Granger Construction.

In September of 2007, Liquid Web has also completed the first of three phases in its second Lansing, Michigan-based data center facility, DataCenter2. It has added over 30 tons of new redundant power equipment to enhance total building resiliency as well as support the second phase of the build out. It has also added an additional Kohler one megawatt generator, Kohler generator paralleling gear, Powerware parallel redundant UPS systems, additional Powerware PDU's and Liebert CRAC units.
