Watch Ant Group's Video History...How we began...Chart our history...Where we're going...
Ant Group was founded by John Hensley in 1988. Aged just 21 and with contribution from the Prince’s Youth Business Trust, he began work learning his trade working with Marconi on radiation-hard silicon on sapphire wafer projects for space, defence and SATCOM.
The end of the Cold War left the company vulnerable due to its core military focus, but a chance meeting at the Prince’s Youth Business Trust Exhibition in 1990 provided a lifeline.
Ant Group soon became a well respected pan European supplier of ESD production consumables with a strong portfolio of products, services and customers and a reputation for being a ‘safe pair of hands’.
