Please send us your ideas and feedback
Your ideas and feedback are the driving force behind our innovation. When you talk. We listen. It is the only way we can ensure our developments continue to be market and customer focussed. We don’t design products for ourselves. We design them for you; so please tell us what you want.

Your Problems. Our Solutions.
At Ancon, we pride ourselves in our ability to think through customer problems and develop new solutions that are not only effective, but practical - making the job easier, quicker or safer to do – often breaking new ground along the way.
Our innovative thinking has led to developments that are now changing the way that buildings are designed and constructed - from narrow lifting anchors for thin 120mm wide precast panels to a revolutionary lockable dowel system that is accelerating the build of post-tensioned concrete frames worldwide.
We have a knack of spotting good ideas and a proven track record of turning them into reality. We successfully launch a number of new products each year. Some are developed in-house by our team of dedicated development engineers and others are brought to us by third-parties.
Get in touch with us if you have an idea and are looking for a strong highly-specified brand with a wide distribution network to bring it to market.

Efficient Innovation Process
Ancon’s established and proven innovation process ensures all ideas are given full consideration, and if approved for development, that they are allocated adequate resources to ensure new and improved products are engineered and launched with minimal delay.
Idea Ownership and Protection
Ancon has a number of ideas on the table at any one time. It is possible that your idea may be similar to others that we are already considering or developing and we want to avoid any misunderstanding around ownership.
You should only submit non-confidential information to us. We recommend that you first protect your idea with a patent application or other intellectual property right if you wish to maintain control.
Unprotected ideas and suggestions are readily accepted by Ancon, however, unless an idea carries intellectual property protection it is assumed that your submission has been freely volunteered to us and that you are forfeiting any rights to it.
Call Andreas Boomkamp on +61 (0) 437 027 594 to discuss any concerns you may have before sending your submission.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
