Our History

Contact Us

Based in the North-East of England, Martyn Edwards & Frank Ford have over 100 years of experience of specialised manufacturing within the frying industry.

Founded by Stan Price and David Atkinson, Martyn Edwards has worked within the fish and chip market for over three decades, whilst the Frank Ford brand – originally based in Halifax – has a pedigree stretching back over a century, with a portfolio that not only covers frying ranges and equipment, but aircraft components and providing canteen equipment to regiments overseas during the war.

Over the years, the name Martyn Edwards and Frank Ford has become synonymous with tradition and reliability, with ranges made in the 1900’s still in use to this day.

Below is just a small selection of archival photographs, showcasing some of our designs, exhibitions and innovations.
