The owner, Mircea Barna, was a renowned basketball player in the 60s and the 70s and was repeatedly declared sportsman of the year in Cluj-Napoca (the biggest city in Transylvania), in 1979 and 1985. Mr. Barna believes that the rigorous training regimen he endured as a professional basketball player led to his success as a business man.
The name Ancada refers to Anca and Adriana (Ada) Barna, Mr. Barna's daughters, both tennis players and champions of Germany in 2000 and 2003, respectively.

This event propelled the brand into the world of first class athletes and top sport performers and led to numerous lucrative collaborations.
