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. That involves devising advanced new components as well as engineering existing products to deliver better performance and lifetime value – keeping Ancon and our clients ahead of the competition.

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, NBS clauses 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.
