Edwards is the leading global vacuum supplier across many industries ranging from semiconductor production to electron microscopy.

Our role in the QEC project is for the design, assembly, optimisation and commissioning of an Extreme High Vacuum system, achieving 1e-12 mbar, in which the QEC quantum computer will be operated. Drawing on our un-paralleled experience and expertise developed across many years and vacuum application areas we are working closely with all other partners to ensure the delivery of a fully functioning platform for the QEC quantum computer to operate in.

Edwards is a leading developer and manufacturer of sophisticated vacuum products, exhaust management systems and related value-added services. These are integral to manufacturing processes for semiconductors, flat panel displays, LEDs and solar cells; are used within an increasingly diverse range of industrial processes including power, glass and other coating applications, steel and other metallurgy, pharmaceutical and chemical; and for both scientific instruments and a wide range of R&D applications.

Edwards has state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Europe, Asia and North America. Edwards is part of the Atlas Copco group.
