Founded in 1996 by chief executive Scott Fletcher, ANS Group says it provides 400 customers with hardware, software and round-the-clock managed IT services, working closely with Cisco, Microsoft, Novell and VMWare. For example, it is partnering with Cisco to install wireless asset-tracker technology. The system is designed for healthcare staff and will enable them to locate medical equipment more efficiently. The Manchester firm floated on PlusMarkets, London’s small and mid-cap stock exchange, in 2000. Heavy investment in its IT partners and an ambitious acquisition strategy have helped sales to grow 36% a year from £4.1m in 2005 to £10.3m in 2008.
