Foden was a United Kingdom truck and bus manufacturing company which has its origins in Sandbach, Cheshire in 1856. American Truck builder PACCAR acquired the company in 1980, and ceased to use the brand name in 2006.

HistoryEdit

Foden MYN 952P at Lymswold - P7270152

A Foden tractor unit used to pull a showmans wagon at Wymswold Steam Rally in 2008

In 1856 Edwin Foden became apprenticed to the Agricultural machinery manufacturing company of Plant & Hancock. He left the company for an apprenticeship at Crewe Railway Works but returned to Plant & Hancock at the age of 19. Shortly afterwards he became a partner in the company. On the retirement of George Hancock in 1887 the company was renamed Edwin Foden Sons & Co. Ltd. The company produced massive industrial engines, as well as small stationary steam engines and agricultural traction engines.

Edwin Foden's great innovation was the development of a practical and highly efficient compound steam unit. From this time on the majority of steam power units produced by the firm benefited from the use of this design. Experimental steam lorries were first produced shortly after the turn of the 20th century. This work led to the design of the successful vehicle that was entered into the 1901 War Office trials. The Foden vehicle came second to a Thornycroft wagon but was nevertheless regarded by most commentators as a clear winner (the result was questioned in Parliament). This model was the basis for a highly successful line of vehicles which were produced over the next 30 years.

Edwin's son, E.R., saw the future lay in diesel power. In 1931, he was removed from the board of directors for advocating diesel over steam, and subsequently retired. However, his son Dennis, George Faulkener, and Ernest Sherratt (all Foden employees) decided to design a new diesel wagon. To help finance the venture, Edwin Richard Foden was persuaded to come out of retirement and head a new company of lorry manufacturer. This company became known as ERF.

In 1980, Foden was acquired by the American firm PACCAR, and is now a division of that company. After the takeover of Leyland Trucks by PACCAR in 1998, independent Foden production ceased, and was replaced by models of DAF Trucks rebadged as Fodens (DAF Trucks having been acquired by PACCAR in 1996). These vehicles have had the option of either CAT, PACCAR or Cummins engines.

Brand retirementEdit

In 2005, it was announced by PACCAR that Foden production was likely to cease in 2006.

The final vehicle to roll off the production line at the factory in Leyland, United Kingdom was an 8x4 rigid, which was delivered to the nearby British Commercial Vehicle Museum.

Lorries (Diesel Trucks)Edit

The main product line over the years has been trucks for road haulage, but they also built off highway trucks used for Civil engineering works and quarry's. The first Disel example was built in the 1930s, but it was not till the post war period that steam wagon production ceased. Later going onto build custom versions of there road haulage trucks for use by heavy haulage operators. The company introduced the modern S.21 cab in 1958 built from fibreglass, with the S.24 being introduced in 1962 as the first production tilt cab in the UK.[1]

Early modelsEdit

Post war ModelsEdit

By 1954 what proved to be a very rugged and successful design of dump truck was produced and the two-stroke engine was becoming a very desirable option for marine applications. In 1958 the first glass reinforced plastic cabs were made enabling Fodens to produce the first British tilt cab in 1962. It is difficult to list the vast number of diverse designs which Fodens produced in the fifties and sixties - single and double deck buses, including the first rear engined bus in 1950, mobile crane chassis, heavy haulage tractors, timber tractors and the innovative 'Twin-load' concept.

Modern modelsEdit

Following Paccars take over in 1980 the firm was renamed as "Sandbach Engineering Company". Then in 1983 renamed as "Foden Trucks", with the new 2000 - light duty, 3000 - medium duty and 4000 - heavy duty ranges introduced with Caterpillar Engines as an option. The military vehicle contracts provided a steady work load for a period. In 1998 the 3000 range was updated using the DAF 85 series Cab (Paccar having also owned DAF of the Netherlands since 1996). The 4000 series was planed to get the DAF 95 cab but a restructuring in 1999 saw the factory shut and the Foden name dropped in favour of other Paccar brands.[2]



Heavy HaulageEdit

Custom built tractor units were manufactured for a variety of operators requirements.

Off Highway HaulageEdit

Military trucksEdit

Foden supplied a range of trucks adapted for Army use to the British Army.

Bus chassisEdit

Foden built a few motor bus chassis in the late 1970s which were bodied by Northern Counties. These didnot prove a commercial success and few were built.

Preserved Traction Engines and LorriesEdit

A number of Foden built traction engines and wagons (lorries) are in preservation, and they are a regular sight at steam shows, and other events for historic vehicles.
