The history of Server Storage Solutions
In 1992 a company called Hi-Tech Systems (HTS) was founded. HTS delivered build-to-order Personal Computers for their customers. HTS assembled, sold and repaired PCs in the Belgian B2B & B2C market.
In 2004, HTS moved on from delivering build-to-order Personal Computers to designing total solutions for customers, where it started to specialize in build-to-order server and storage equipment. The new company cooperated more and more with system integrators, amongst which suppliers of cloud applications over the internet.
In 2010, the current General Managers, Christophe Dekeukeleire and Roel De Frene performed a management buyout and pushed the company into the European Market. S3S was born.
Early 2011, S3S started pioneering with Solid State Drive (SSD) machines, true to its innovational spirit. By doing that it grew to the most versatile SSD supplier in the European market. The main focus went to higher-end storage and server applications for the IT industry.
We opened our Bulgarian sales office to support and extend our businesses in Eastern Europe.
2015, a great year for S3S. The company grew with 30% more revenue, more employees, a brand new HQ building and its own new Marketing departement. A brand new website was launched with integrated webshops for online configuration of server and storage equipment which gets assembled in a brand new technical assembly lab based in the new HQ.
We opened our brand new headquarter in Czech Republic to further extend our businesses in Eastern Europe.
Due to continuation of exponentional growth, S3S had to improve and increase stock management. A complete upgrade of the warehouse was necessary. The upgrade and optimization of the warehouse more than doubled our capacity.
On top of the warehouse upgrade, S3S also upgraded their Technical Department tripling the assembly line.
