ANS Group is Manchester Business of the Year


ANS Group was named the Manchester Business of the Year at the City of Manchester Business Awards that took place at Manchester Cathedral last night. Despite tough competition from Applied Language Solutions, Bruntwood and Klarius, ANS’ tremendous performance over the past twelve months obviously impressed the voters as they left with the trophy.

With a large expansion seeing the number of staff rise from 80 to 140, ANS have seen sales of their innovative FlexPod data centre design, Infrastructure 3.0, increasing in both volume and value as customers in the private sector, the NHS, and regional and central Government implement the combination of Cisco, NetApp and VMware technology to save money and improve performance. The company has also launched a strong managed services portfolio, offering infrastructure-as-a-service in an outsourced cloud environment.

Scott Fletcher, the Chairman and founder of ANS Group, said, “This is a terrific award for us, one that tops off our year nicely. We have our year end in March and these last twelve months have seen us breaking records and progressing at quite a speed. What we are most proud of is that we have managed to retain our unique culture through this period of expansion, at ANS we genuinely all love coming to work in the morning and although this sounds like a cliché, it is one big family. Every single member of staff can be proud of their contribution to our success. Thanks guys.”
