We then, if required, guide you through the design and ordering process making sure every detail is well communicated right the way through to delivery. We don’t leave it there! We go on to offer full support, training and site supervision and won’t rest until we know that you are completely satisfied with the products we have supplied and the service we have provided you.

A Brief History

Anchor Systems was founded in 1995 by Ewan Smith who remained the Managing Director up to his retirement in 2016. Ewan established the most versatile and largest range of Earth Anchors globally and was the inventor of the patented Anchor Post. The Anchor Post was established for the UK Rail market in 2007, to which 30,000+ units have been supplied to London Underground to date. Hadley Smith; Ewan’s son, took over the business from in 2016 and has gone onto making significant improvements and investments for the business including additions to the team, better facilities and improved processes overall.
