Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and MPP John Gerretsen visited Anchor Concrete Products Ltd. on May 14 to promote the proposed Liberal Budget and emphasize her Government’s commitment to supporting small businesses in Ontario, such as Anchor Concrete Ltd.
Anchor Concrete Ltd. was founded in Kingston, Ontario in 1969 and for over 40 years has been a family-run business providing high quality manufactured concrete products for Provincial, Municipal, Commercial, Industrial and Residential Infrastructure systems. These systems include collection, conveyance, storage and treatment systems for sanitary sewage, storm water and fresh water as well as a wide variety of products for electrical generation and transmission, road and rail transportation systems and soil/earth retention systems. Anchor Concrete Ltd. has built a reputation in the infrastructure business for quality, durability, innovation and exceptional customer service.
Jeff Bradifeld, President of Anchor Concrete Ltd. said, “we were honored to be able to host Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne to Kingston and to Anchor Concrete Ltd. to view our facilities and meet our employees. It is excellent to see our government supporting small businesses in our community.”
Over the years, Anchor Concrete Ltd. has been involved with many high profile infrastructure projects including the Bombardier Monorail test track completed in 2011. Anchor received an International award for this project from the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) for Creative Use of Precast (CUP). This project required strict manufacturing tolerances combined with innovative and efficient solutions associated with the project’s design and manufacturing challenges. Other high profile projects include 65,000 litre big tank bio-digesters supplied to Norterra Organics “green waste” composting facility which composts the organic waste of the City of Kingston. We are currently involved in providing pre-manufactured infrastructure products for other notable customers such as the MTO, TTC, Metrolinx and Hydro One to name a few.
Anchor passionately strives to continue to design and build Sustainable Infrastructure Systems. We believe that through our efforts, affordable, sustainable, healthy, eco-effective communities may become a near term reality for all Ontario and North American residents.

Hamilton Kent celebrates 70 years of sealing connections
2013 marks 70 years in business for North America’s premier manufacturer of sealing systems and components for underground infrastructure
A multinational manufacturer and distributor of resilient-rubber, watertight sealing systems and components for underground infrastructure, Hamilton Kent is marking a major milestone in its history with the celebration of its 70th anniversary.
Founded in 1943 in Kent, Ohio, Hamilton Kent started out as a small manufacturer of rubber components for the war effort (it was so small in fact, that it started in the basement of a residence). It has since grown into one of North America’s premiere manufacturers of gaskets, connectors and other sealing components for underground infrastructure, operating out of two world-class facilities in Toronto, Ontario and Winchester, Tennessee.
Hamilton Kent products can now be found in countless underground infrastructure projects in North America, from the pipes supplying clean water to municipal customers to the sanitary sewer pipelines taking the wastewater away for treatment.
“In 70 years, a lot of things have changed. But many things have stayed the same. Quality products are still critical for keeping underground infrastructure watertight and great customer service is still valued,” says Bernard Grégoire, President and C.O.O., Hamilton Kent. “As we celebrate our 70th birthday this year, we’re proud of our contributions to underground infrastructure and pleased that Hamilton Kent is still regarded as North America’s premier manufacturer for sealing buried systems and components.”
