The two partners previously worked for HARRIS ADACOM, a mainframe telecommunications distributor.
A.N.S. started its business activity selling refurbished Cisco® hardware. In response to requests from its customers, A.N.S. decided to offer them new network hardware independently of any manufacturer.
A few years later, they founded A.N.S. Luxembourg and A.N.F. France.
At the same time, A.N.S. entered the DATACENTER world with solutions such as Raritan's intelligent KVMs and PDUs, as well as WDM solutions.
Over the years, A.N.S.has increased the number of maintenance services it provides for its solutions and A.N.S. has become the ONLY Belux company to provide maintenance and demonstration equipment for the Raritan range.
In 2002, André Soentjens retired and his place was taken by Benoit del Marmol, previously with Econocom Benelux.
