At Sapphire, we’re proud to WOW. Wowing you by beating our own records, by pushing ourselves further than ever before, or perhaps by pushing what it means to be an innovator in construction.

Our annual WOW moments are something of a milestone, to show how far we’ve come and how far we’re going to go. WOW moments have, in the past, included installation speed, production or storage records, key innovations like the Next Generation suite, Vision 2030 commitments or our Passport App. Our investment in Research and Development is another example of our dedication to wow our customers and bring key developments to market.

Take a look below and see how Sapphire, year on year, continues to WOW the construction market.
