Ancon is honoured by HM The Queen at second Royal Reception
Ancon has again been honoured at a Royal Reception following the company’s second Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Ancon’s success in the 2015 Awards comes in recognition of its International Trade and acknowledges the company’s outstanding achievements in growing sales across new and existing export markets. It follows success in 2012, when the company was honoured with a Queen’s Award in Innovation, for the development and commercialisation of a unique Lockable Dowel, a system that has revolutionised post-tensioned concrete construction.
The 2015 award was officially presented on 15th October by the Lord Lieutenant of Clwyd, at a special ceremony at Ancon’s production facilities in Deeside, North Wales. After a tour of the site, which is the UK’s largest wall tie manufacturing operation, the Lord Lieutenant addressed a group of 36 employees saying, “Ancon represents the very best of British innovation and technology, and this dynamic company, which has trebled its exports in the last ten years, has led the way in its field. To win one award is pretty spectacular, to win two awards in three years is absolutely amazing.”
Ancon BIM Objects updated to meet National BIM Standard
Ancon is pleased to announce that all of its BIM Objects in Revit and IFC format have been updated to meet the National BIM Standard.
Users can be confident each file has been quality-checked by the NBS team, catalogued in line with the National Building Specification and has a product structure designed to work seamlessly with the BIM specification tool NBS Create, as well as being compatible with COBie spreadsheets and IFC data exchanges.
Ancon’s BIM Objects cover a wide range of the company’s market-leading products, including standard cavity wall ties and other masonry restraints, masonry supports, windposts and masonry reinforcement, tension bar systems, shear load connectors, stud rails and reinforcement continuity systems; all of which are critical to the structural integrity of a building and essential to an accurate BIM model.

Super-cool rebar couplers from Ancon
In line with our global reputation for developing reliable, high performance fixing systems for demanding construction environments, Ancon’s latest launch is a range of reinforcing bar couplers designed to operate at cryogenic temperatures.
Typical applications include the construction of steel-lined concrete storage tanks for refrigerated liquefied gas (LNG/LPG).
Independently tested with cryogenic-grade rebar at a cool -165°C to the requirements of EN 14620-3, the new Ancon CTT range of couplers is available to suit bars from 12mm to 32mm diameter.
Featuring a tapered-thread to simplify bar alignment and engagement, and reduce the chances of cross threading, CTT Couplers are compact in design, so are ideal for use where space is tight, and can be installed quickly and easily, minimising construction time and costs.
