Three years after a management team acquired Perth-based Edwards Engineering, the company has seen turnover accelerate on the back of investment in its skills-set.

The 50-year-old firm with customers spanning the food and drink, manufacturing, agricultural and construction sectors was acquired in August 2016 through a management buy-in.

Since then, revenues have doubled, delivering year on year growth of 26% and 28% in 2018 and 2019 respectively. 

Supporting the growth of the business staff numbers have increased from 48 to 62. Apprentices make up a fifth of the firm’s 40 strong engineering workforce.
