Our History

A proud third generation family business

Edge Transport was founded in 1933 so will be 85 years old in 2018.  Alfred Edge started as an owner driver distributing goods for the Army during the war and afterwards started to provide long distance haulage to Chester businesses. In the early 1960’s Alfred’s son, Peter Edge, took over the company’s continued expansion resulting in a relocation from Chester to Llay Industrial Estate.

The business continued to go from strength to strength and developed a reputation for high quality distribution services across the North West and North Wales.

Views from the other side of the fence...

Since 2000, the business has been run by the next generation, Jonathan and Jenny. In September 2001 Richard Pridding joined the business, later becoming Jenny’s husband, and Jonathan’s wife Nikki, also started working for the company in 2012.

In 2013 it became apparent that the business would soon outgrow the site in Llay so we started searching for a larger site. After months of searching we found a 6.2 acre site on Fourth Avenue, Deeside Industrial Estate which was perfect.

Over the next 18 months the site was transformed into a purpose built 75,000 sq ft storage and distribution facility that Edge are immensely proud of.  Our new site was officially opened by the Rt Hon Lord Barry Jones on 14th September 2015, 4 months after we moved in.

Over the years, we’re proud that our achievements have been recognised outside of the business. Edge have been awarded Palletline Depot of the Year seven times, which is more than any other Palletline member during it’s 25 year history. We were also the first ever member to scoop both ‘top’ Palletline awards, Depot of the year and Delivery Depot of the year. Each month Palletline review each depot’s performance and issue Performance Certificates to those depots who have consistently exceeded the stringent KPI’s for that month. We have received 6 certificates so far (as at April 2018) and are on target to continue to achieve each month.

We’ve also been shortlisted for a Daily Post Achievement Wales Award in 2015 and a Family Business Award in 2014. In 2017 we were thrilled to receive the West Chester and North Wales Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award.

Edge is a true family business with great people working for us. We’re commited to investing in our people and continuing the family tradition.
