• Our Commitment to the Environment

    We're committed to excellence in the management of the environment - there is no higher priority for us.

    We strive to be the environmental leader in the field of vacuum pumping and abatement by applying technology, products and services to benefit the environment for future generations.

    • Over our product’s life-cycle we are Green House Gas or Carbon equivalent negative, in other words our abatement products destroy compounds that have a very high global warming potential
    • Our technologies enable the manufacturing of a wide range of environmental products - vacuum is essential for the production of solar cells and solid state lighting
    • When our products need replacing we offer ways to refurbish them for reuse – we already refurbish 35,000 of them each year. At the end of their life cycle, our vacuum products are disassembled so that their primary materials are recycled keeping them out of landfills
    • We’re also investing in new facilities that meet or exceed environmental norms and changing the ways we work

  • Our History

     

    When F.D. Edwards began manufacturing vacuum equipment in 1939, he made a commitment to technical innovation that remains solidly at the heart of what we do today.
