Genesis Edwards Siren Flasher Equipment

Founded in 1872 by Robert Edwards and David Rousseau, the Edwards Company has a rich history of success.

  • Today. . . With headquarters in Farmington, CT, manufacturing in Pittsfield, ME, distribution in Portland, TN, and Sales and Service locations around the world, it seems like a very long road to the basement of Lungen's jewelery store. Yet many of the different products Edwards manufactures today are direct descendants of gas armature igniters, electric bells, and program systems that went into the design and construction of structures more than a century ago.
