Marden Edwards                                                                     

Marden Edwards, a family run business established over 50 years, is a world leader in the design, manufacture and assembly of overwrapping and packaging systems. The position as international market leader is the result of an exceptionally comprehensive product range, an ability to tailor machinery to individual applications, and a worldwide network of trade partners providing local expertise and after sales service.

Over 10,000 Marden Edwards systems have been manufactured from our UK factory and installed in over 150 countries worldwide. All our systems are designed, manufactured and supplied to the latest ISO standards to ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 & ISO 45001:2018, seamlessly integrating our packaging machinery into your production process.

It is a measure of the reliability and lasting quality of the machinery that many of the early machines, produced up to 50 years ago, are still in production and fully supported by our after sales division.

An integral part of Marden Edwards success comes from the continued commitment to support apprenticeship schemes. We are proud to have a rich history of investing in apprenticeships and believe it is a productive and effective way to enable applicants to make their passion their career whilst developing motivated, highly skilled future employees.

We’ve had many examples of employees committing their full career from apprentice to retirement and currently have many throughout manufacturing parts, machine assembly, electrical design & assembly, mechanical design, controls engineering and sales departments who are still progressing their careers either focussing on one department or being supported to expand their skills moving departments, we encourage and support any aspirations employees have.

We use SETA as our training service provider for our apprenticeships as they provide accredited, industry recognised training with a history spanning 50 years themselves. They adopt a professional work environment from day one of the apprentice starting their training. We value the initial hands-on practical training received during their workshop time right at the beginning of the apprenticeship, as the apprentices then start with us having received a good grounding. This combined with the ‘day-release’ delivery across two years for the academic technical knowledge, is a good model and fits in with our working ethos allowing career development for our employees.
