is revolutionising the events and construction industry.

Our Story

Setup by company founders Chris Simpson & Steve Batkin in 2008, Anchor Bloc™ was first used for the securing a free standing personelle walkway for EDF energy during a renovation project on West Burton Power Station. 

In the easly days they only had the facility to pour 1 x 1000kg AnchorBloc™ per day, which would be cast, stripped, cured and delivered instantly to site in order to meet the projects tight deadline. 

Today the company holds over 2,500 tons of the AnchorBloc™ product ready to be hired, sold or used in its many projects and hoardings.
