Anchor Systems Turns 25!

This year Anchor Systems is celebrating it’s 25th Birthday and what better way to celebrate than with a socially distanced slice of cake.

What started off as a small company out the back of a garden shed quickly grew into a much larger business which we have kept on growing ever since. We now supply our Vulcan Anchors across the globe and have only recently, once again, expanded our warehouse and offices.

The Vulcan Anchor range is the largest range of earth anchors anywhere in world and they have a holding capacity of up to 450kN. We also created a new type of anchor known as the Anchor Post which is a versatile and adaptable foundation system for small to medium lightweight structures. To date we have supplied over 40,000 units to London Underground for various solutions.

Happy Birthday to us, and here’s to the next quarter of a century!

Expanding Our Offices

At the start of the year we expanded our offices as we were expanding our workforce and running out of desks.

We added in space for more desks and a dedicated meeting room which we were desperately in need for.

In addition to the new inside space we have also overhauled our signage across all our units as we have expanded from one unit to three over the last couple of years and wanted to make it clear to our visitors where to go when they arrive on site.

Unfortunately thanks to Covid we have been unable to show off all our hard work to any visitors so here is a gallery so here’s a sneak peak at what we have been up to…



[gallery slick_active="true" sl_centermode="true" ids="2618,2619,2621,2622,2623,2624,2625,2626,2627,2628,2629,2630"]

A New Design Engineer Joins the Team

A big, warm, Anchor Systems welcome to our newest team member, Jonathan.

Jonathan is our very own in house CAD Design Engineer and will be a great asset in our fast moving business, being able to turn ideas into concepts with a quick turnaround. This will allow us to offer an even better customer experience and service.


Jonathan joined us at a very strange time, right at the start of lockdown.

In fact, he had his car packed and was on his way to move down to us from Glasgow when the country was put into lockdown and he had to turn around and head back home!


Until the rules were relaxed Jonathan was working from home up in Glasgow before he could travel down to relocate and start work in the office. Even to this day he still hasn’t met all of the team but he is settling in well and hopefully normality will resume soon and we can have a proper welcome party all together in one room.


Jonathan graduated last summer from the University of Strathclyde with an MEng degree in Sports Engineering. He has relocated as far away from his home in Glasgow as he possibly could just to join our team as it was just the job opportunity he was looking for.

In his spare time Jonathan is a keen cyclist and enjoys taking part in sports activities and going to the gym.


I think you are going to fit in just fine here Jonathan!

Welcome Back Emily!

A few weeks ago we welcomed Emily back into the Anchor Systems team in her new role as a Personal Assistant.

Emily worked at Anchor Systems for three years as our office manager before going on maternity leave two years ago to have her daughter.

We caught up with her to find out how she is getting on.


Firstly, how does it feel to be back?
It feels fantastic. I was so pleased to be asked back.


There have been some changes since you left, the new office and expansion within the team, what do you make of them?
The new office is so much better, it’s great to have such a nice place to come to work. There is much more space, including a large biscuit drawer! My new team mates have been very welcoming and helpful with my transition back to work.


Now you have settled into your new role how are you enjoying it, is it very different to the work you were doing here with us before?
I’m enjoying it very much and getting my brain working again after being away for 2 years. Yes, it is completely different. Instead of spending time on the ordering process side of the business and general running of the office, I am now assisting where I can with administration and correspondence, organising of diaries, travel arrangements etc. I am happy to help out wherever I am needed!


How are you coping with juggling a 2 year old and being back at work?
I come here for a rest!
It is actually working out perfectly. My little girl now goes to nursery (which she loves) and I get to go to a job I love.


It’s great to see Emily back and we look forward to many more years of her working here!
