Company history

We have over 30 year old history. Founded in 1987, before the systemic changes in Poland in early 90s. We were an IT support company. Since then we came a long way, but our goal was and still is to always offer our clients best products and best in class services.

Founded in 1987, before the political transformation that took place in Poland in the 90s, Alstor has been present on the IT market for over 30 years. Initially we provided computer services, but in time we’ve grown to become the value-added distributor we are today. We’ve come a long way, but our goal has always been the same: to provide our customers with products and services of the highest quality.

Back when we were still called Initel-Serwis, we provided mainly computer services. In 1992, we undertook our first distribution job: the marketing of Fujitsu printers. Within the next year, we began cooperation with two well-known manufacturers: Toshiba and Emulex. In time, the range of products in our portfolio expanded and evolved towards mass storage solutions. In 1997, this prompted us to change the company name to ALSTOR (“all storage”).

The beginning of the 21st century was a time of dynamic changes for us. We expanded our portfolio to include medical, imaging and data security solutions as well as typical consumer products. We also  created new departments responsible for specific product ranges, each of them an independent unit charged with comprehensive support. Based on those experiences, in 2019 the company’s management decided to reorganize Alstor into four main units:

  • Medical diagnostic decision support systems & radiology imaging systems
  • Professional imaging systems
  • IT consumer products
  • Integration solutions

Follow the timeline below to discover the most important events in Alstor’s history.

iCorner continues to grow at a dynamic pace, offering consumer products such as mobile device accessories and increasingly popular interactive toys. Several products from our portfolio receive awards. As voted by users, EIZO ColorEdge CG319X and ColorEdge CG279X win 1st and 2nd place respectively in the editing solutions category of the Digital Camera Poland & Fotopolis Awards.
