20 Years of Powering the Experience

In the history of ANC, January 22nd is a big day. Some would say it is our biggest day; our first official day as a company. 20 years later, ANC has designed, integrated, serviced, operated, and created content for some of the highest profile installations in the world.  Initially founded as a rotational signage company with deep roots in professional sports, ANC’s beginnings were simple. A small staff of dedicated employees took ANC from rotational signage to LED ribbon to large scale video screens in some of the most prominent sports stadiums in the world. Over the past 20 years, ANC transformed into the preeminent technology service provider for stadiums, entertainment facilities, transportation hubs, and retail venues. Beginning with 3 employees and growing to over 200, ANC has always put their partners first, providing them with exemplary service and the highest quality product in the business.

“I have been fortunate enough to work closely with Jerry Cifarelli and  ANC since day one, in San Diego and Boston.  Simply put, Jerry and ANC  epitomize what partnership is all about. All of us at Fenway feel lucky to  partner with ANC and we congratulate them on 20 great years!” – Sam  Kennedy, President, Boston Red Sox

Throughout our 20 years, ANC has been responsible for some of the highest profile installations in professional sports, including Seattle Mariners (largest HD video display in MLB), Los Angeles Dodgers (most pixels per square foot in MLB), and Cleveland Cavaliers (largest center-hung in the United States). ANC is known throughout the industry for our strong reputation for providing our partners with the best customer service in the industry. Our employees work in tandem from venue assessment to installation to make sure every gameday is a success.

“Congratulations to all of our friends at ANC on a wonderful 20th Anniversary.  We have worked with ANC for many years and most  recently on our state of the art scoreboard, video boards around the  concourses, and in our new Lightbound Courtside Club.  From design to  installation, our friends at ANC have always excelled at exceeding our  expectation.  All of us at the Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever, and Bankers  Life Fieldhouse are proud of our relationship with ANC and look forward to  continuing our partnership for years to come.” – Rick Fuson,  President/COO, Indiana Pacers

After years of success in the sports industry, we were ready to expand and take our high level of service and commitment to new sectors. We felt our service model and expertise in the world of sports was perfect for helping create large-scale spectaculars. Beginning with Fulton Station and growing into the recent network at Westfield World Trade Center, we are creating dynamic installs for the retail and transit sectors, which has attracted national attention for ANC. As we look forward to the next 20 years, we know that this is only the beginning and we look forward to creating the installs people will be talking about for years to come.

“I have been a customer of ANCs for 20 years in three different cities.  I have always had the latest, state of the art product, with the best  in personal 24/7 customer service. For me, that is what makes them  industry leaders." – Stan Kasten, President & CEO, Los Angeles Dodgers
