We want to hear from you.
How do you think our Ancon product range could be expanded or improved?
Construction is a dynamic and challenging industry. We love it! It continues to test us - with ever-evolving construction techniques, regulations and architectural concepts – providing us with unlimited opportunities to shine. Manufactured by Leviat, the Ancon product brand is more widely recognised and respected worldwide than ever before.
We want you to have a say in where we go in the future.
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 from us.

Your Problems. Our Solutions.
At Leviat, 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 major developments that are now changing the way that buildings are designed and constructed - from ultra-low thermal conductivity Ancon wall ties that almost eliminate thermal bridging in masonry cavity walls to a revolutionary Ancon lockable dowel system that is accelerating the build of post-tensioned concrete frames worldwide – as well as providing bespoke fixing solutions for some of the world’s most demanding construction projects.
|As Charles Darwin discovered, it’s not the strongest species that survive but the most responsive to change. At Leviat, we embrace change.

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
We are open to ideas from both inside and outside our company and industry. We run an incentivised employee ideas scheme which generates 100s of ideas a year to complement those generated from external sources.
Leviat's established and proven innovation process ensures all ideas, irrespective of their source, 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.
Recent new Ancon products include:
Don’t just take our word for it – we’ve picked up several prestigious industry awards over recent years, including three Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, widely regarded as the highest accolade any UK business can achieve for business performance excellence.
Idea Ownership and Protection
We have 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.

From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
