ANS Named in the Investec Hot 100


ANS Group has been placed 38th in the Investec Hot 100 that was published today by Real Business. The Hot 100 profiles and ranks the fastest growing mid-sized companies in the UK with data compiled from accounts filed at Companies House. ANS is one of only 16 IT companies in the Hot 100 and has experienced rapid growth due to the success of their data centre Flexpod architecture, Infrastructure 3.0, and their managed services solutions.

ANS have recently announced large Flexpod contracts with UHSM, Salisbury NHS and Milton Keynes PCT, and expects turnover to be in excess of £40m for 2012, a 50% increase from 2011.

Paul Sweeney, MD at ANS Group, said, “We are delighted that our growth has been recognised by our inclusion in the Hot 100. As this position comes solely from raw data it is a real honour to know that we are amongst the fastest growing companies in the UK. We have worked hard to get ourselves to a position where, even in very difficult economic conditions, we can still provide value for our customers and therefore continue to bring in big deals.”

Ed Cottrell, Investec said, “The Investec Hot 100 reveals the gradual emergence of a new generation of world-class UK businesses that with proprietary technology and an appetite for international markets, will be the global players of the future.”

Matthew Rock, founder-editor of Real Business, said: “Real Business has published the Hot 100 for the past 15 years, and the 2012 report is one of the most revealing insights ever into the high performance mid-sized companies that are so critical to Britain’s economic prosperity. The big lesson from this year’s research is that, even in a tough climate, Hot 100 companies stay relevant. They adapt to the dramatic social, demographic and technology changes that are reshaping our world. As one market declines, they possess the high-energy leadership and finely tuned antennae to shift decisively into new growth areas.”
