Ceaseless innovation to meet challenging requirements

Product development never ceases at Ancon. Our experienced technical specialists work closely with developers, architects and structural engineers to ensure that our products meet the demands of today’s most challenging construction programmes – while complying with new and emerging regulations.

Our business is structured around meeting customer requirements efficiently and cost effectively. Our customer service professionals and extensive distribution network enable us to deliver the products that customers need, just when they’re needed – anywhere in the world.

Technical support from the specialists

Recognised worldwide for our technical expertise and customer support, we have created detailed technical literature, design software, NATSPEC and a Building Information Modelling (BIM) library to ensure that those who specify, distribute and install our products are well informed and advised. By making these resources free to download 24-7, we support customers in securing major UK and international construction contracts.

Our technical and advisory support services ensure that clients deploy Ancon products accurately and efficiently to deliver optimum performance – whatever the application.

Award-winning ingenuity

The quality and ingenuity of Ancon products, and the company’s global growth have been recognised by the award of two prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. The company received the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2012 for its development of the unique lockable dowel system for post-tensioned concrete construction. In 2015, we received a second Queen’s Award, this time for international trade, in recognition of the company’s export growth in existing and new markets.
