Edwards’s vacuum pumps were founded in 1919 by Physicist F. D. Edward in South London, England. The business first started importing vacuum equipment before commencing independent manufacturing of their own vacuum pumps. The first Edwards vacuum pump was designed and launched in 1937 and was known as the Speedivac Pump. By 1946 Edwards had designed and launched the first post-WW2 vacuum pump, or better known as the Speedivac 1A. In 1952 Edwards had opened the first international establishment of Edwards High Vacuum Canada, Ltd. After, the company was relocated to Crawley in 1953 (which was later acquired by The BOC Group in 1968).
By 1975 Edwards Vacuum Pumps were taking over the world, at this time they were already shipping to over 75 countries. Between 1984 and 1992 Edwards started entering the abatement business focusing on exhaust gases and had the Drystar Dry Vacuum Pump patented. Since 1992, Edwards Vacuum Pumps has since opened locations in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and China; and was most recently, in 2014, acquired by Atlas Copco. 2019 marked a historical time for Edwards as they celebrated 100 years in business. The Edwards vacuum pump line is extremely popular all over the USA.
