Ontec has a proud history in South Africa dating back to 1989 when Angcon Technologies started manufacturing prepaid meters in Atlantis. Over the following decades the company changed name a number of times as it evolved along with the prepayment market in South Africa.

Notably the company became part of a global family when it was acquired by Actaris in 2001 and thereafter in 2007 part of the global metering industry leader Itron (when it acquired Actaris). The South African company was a key and instrumental part of the Itron global family as the expert in prepayment metering technologies and was instrumental in taking STS prepayment metering to the rest of the globe.
