Edwin Foden Sons & Co. was a manufacturer of trucks and buses based in Sandbach, Cheshire, England. It started 'life' as Plant & Hancock making agricultural equipment since 1856. In 1887 it was taken over by Edwin Foden and the business was renamed. The company now focused on the manufacturing of steam powered engines in all sizes and for all purposes (including agricultural traction engines). Later steam lorries were added to the 'repertoire'. Though late (as considered by many) the business switched to diesel in the 1930s. The later life of the business included producing buses. In 1980 the company was taken over by Paccar and some 25 years later the brand name was dropped completely.
