We are proud to have a New Zealand international swimmer Lauren Boyle as our Brand Ambassador. She has competed at three Commonwealth Games and two Olympic Games - and has been chosen to represent New Zealand in the 400m and 800m freestyle for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Safety and Security
Many of Anchor’s products center around Safety and Security. From reinforcing mesh that creates a stronger, safer and more secure outcome in construction to personal security solutions for industrial applications. Also fencing solutions that protect people in hazardous environments such as motorways, rail lines and pools.
It is this Safety and Security message that Lauren is helping us to promote. All Safety and Security solutions require products that are strong, standards compliant and are made to a consistently high quality. We aim for a top performance every time, like an Olympian!
