In 1986 Edgeworth Engineering Ltd was established by Brian Murphy and Roy Tucker, over the next fourteen years they steadily grew the business and gained a loyal following for their quality workmanship.
In 2000 Brian and Roy sold their business to Paul Reid and Paul Duncan who were then working as contractors for North Harbour Toolmaking. The company was renamed Egdeworth 2000 Ltd.
In 2001 Paul and Paul invested in CAD CAM software and CNC machinery to take advantage of the improved accuracy and speed that the technology was bringing to the industry. They now run four CNC machining centres including a 5 axis machine, a CNC lathe and CNC wire cut machine.
Edgeworth 2000 Ltd employs 5 staff with both Paul Reid and Paul Duncan working alongside them on the workshop floor.
