Sedgwick Woodworking Machinery are the UK’s highest volume manufacturers of classical woodworking machinery.
At the heart of the Sedgwick philosophy is an appreciation of traditional engineering standards, and a determination to provide genuine life cycle value to all Sedgwick Machines.
Sedgwick are committed to the development and production of new and existing products targeted specifically at the professional, semi-professional and education markets.
All woodworking machines are designed and built here in the UK using the latest in Computer Aided Design and Manufacture and CNC Machine Tools. The first Sedgwick Woodworking Machinery Workshop was opened in Bramley near Leeds, and it was here that the original 571 Hollow Chisel Morticer (which is still in production) was designed and built.
In 1963 Maurice was joined full-time by his son John, and the workforce moved to Pudsey, where they commenced building of additional Sedgwick machinery types, including saws, planer thicknesser, and spindle moulders. A new factory was built in 1985 in Stanningley, West Yorkshire under John Sedgwick’s design and guidance to house a larger production facility and to ensure room for further expansion.
John continues to supply the direction for Sedgwick, specifically heading up the design and development department and aiding in the selection of new materials and suppliers.
