During the early 1920s their London office was at No. 406, Euston Road, later moving to Edwards House, Nos. 359-361, Euston Road,  London.

They traded as Besco Machines and Tools and supplied many industries with sheet metal working machinery, woodworking machinery and metal folding machines.

In the early 1900s there were a few large engineering companies with sufficient knowledge and industrial expertise to produce the vast castings required. Edwards was one such firm, marketing the equipment from their London premises.
