Unicon joins Ancon
Together, we are stronger.
Ancon Building Products is pleased to announce its merger with Unicon, a supplier of lifting and anchoring systems to the New Zealand and Australian precast concrete market.
Jon Bond, Managing Director of Ancon’s operations in Australia & New Zealand says,
“The merger with Ancon will strengthen and expand the Unicon business. Ancon is part of CRH Plc, an international building materials group, which includes some of the world’s most trusted construction brands.”
“Unicon customers will not only gain access to Ancon’s comprehensive portfolio of concrete and masonry construction products, but also fixing technologies from across the CRH network.”
Chris Brooks, Manager of the new Unicon division of Ancon says,
“Working together, Ancon and Unicon will provide an unrivalled service to the precast concrete industry.”
“Thanks to Ancon’s infrastructure, we can offer customers a more comprehensive product portfolio and local stock nationwide.”
New literature is available featuring our comprehensive precast concrete product range.
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.
