BSI recognises Ancon’s ongoing commitment to quality and environmental management
Ancon’s commitment to business excellence has been further recognised with long tenure awards for two of the industry’s key systems management standards.
The awards, which were presented by BSI (British Standards Institution), mark over 20 years of continuous certification of Ancon’s quality management system under ISO 9001 and over 10 years’ tenure of ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system.
To maintain these internationally recognised certifications, which form the framework for quality in all of the company’s systems and processes, Ancon has demonstrated effective control and improvement in every area of its business, from purchasing and materials inspection to employee training, product design and manufacturing, with BSI inspectors monitoring progress via systematic biannual assessments.
The awards were presented by Rob Hine, Head of BSI’s Commercial Engagement team, at a special ceremony at the Ecobuild 2017 exhibition, the UK’s foremost event for sustainability in the built environment, where double Queen’s Award winner, Ancon, was launching a range of innovative new and improved products.
Annabelle Wilson, Head of Marketing and Innovation at Ancon, accepted the awards on behalf of the company.
Jeremy Bacon, Ancon’s Environmental, Health and Safety and Quality (EHSQ) Manager, said,
“ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 have not only been an invaluable tool in shaping our first class management systems, they have provided an impetus for continuous improvement over the last 20 years, particularly in sustainability areas, like energy efficiency and waste management, which are now critical to ongoing business success”.
“These certifications are not only key to improving the company’s performance, they demonstrate to our clients that we have effective systems in place to ensure consistent product quality and to manage their enquiries effectively and efficiently. These systems, together with the commitment of the Ancon team who engage with them on a daily basis, means customers come back to us again and again.”

Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.
The health, safety and wellbeing of all those who work with us and for us, as well as the general public, is always our No. 1 priority.
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.
