It was founded by Anders Åsberg in october 2002 as a-kvadrat konsult a private company. Anders Åsberg who is a former employe of ASEA, Dresser Rand, ABB, GVA-C and Sweco Energuide got the idea during one mission in Bagdad in august 2002 and a couple of months later he resigned his employment at Sweco Energuide and a-kvadrat konsult was founded.

In 1997 he joined ABB Network partner and started with commissioning of relay protections for substation and power plant applications. After some years he turned over to the relay protection application specialist department and after this to the support department.
