In 1985 DJB (David J. B. Brown) went on to buy Bedford trucks from General Motors in 1987 and renamed the firm AWD (GM retained the Bedford brand name).The AWD name was used as GM would only allow the use of the Bedford name for military trucks. AWD continued with the TL and TM range. The AWD Bedford TK (a rebadged and modernised version of the Bedford TK / MK range) was also produced and supplied to the British military. Due to cheaper competition and the virtual collapse of the UK market in which AWD competed in 1989/90 the company went into receivership in 1992 and was bought by dealer network Marshall of Cambridge. Trucks were produced under the brand Bedford - Marshall.

Vehicle Engineering
Our Vehicle Engineering team adds the essential finishing modifications to military and commercial vehicles, ensuring they are fit for the vehicleТs role. In partnership with the vehicle OEM, customer and end user, we design and manufacture vehicle enhancements from load beds, trays and flat racks, through to enhancing vehicle survivability including armouring and riot protection equipment. We work closely with targeted partners to select, validate and install vehicle mounted sub-systems including tail lifts, cranes and winches. To date our partners include vehicle manufacturers including Rhienmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV), IVECO, Thales, Force Protection, Renault alongside other global manufacturers. Whether a one-off modification or a cross fleet installation our vehicle engineering activities are underpinned by our attention to detail and rigorous project management. This ensures that all technical, cost and programmatic considerations are accounted for.
