Helifix Joins Ancon
Ancon Building Products is pleased to announce the acquisition of Helifix, a manufacturer of specialist helical fixings for the construction industry.
Managing Director of Ancon’s operations in Australia and New Zealand, Jon Bond, commented,
“The Helifix range of innovative and concealed masonry repair systems will complement our existing range of products for masonry construction. With operations in New Zealand, Australia, the USA and Europe, the Helifix Group strengthens Ancon’s position in these key territories.”
Philip Hayman, manager of the Helifix division of Ancon said,
“The change of ownership will allow the local expertise of Helifix to benefit from the larger company resources, and thanks to Ancon’s infrastructure, we can offer our customers a more comprehensive product range and local 'nationwide' stock.
A new brochure outlining the complete Helifix product range is available to download here, or hard copies are available on request.
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.
