TGW International Pearl Technologies Leverwood Knife Works

Our History

EDGE came to be in 2018, when acquisitions TGW International and TGW Global merged with Pearl Technologies.

In 2021, EDGE acquired Leverwood Knife Works of Red Lion, PA, and with an eye to the future, doubled Leverwood’s capacity. Moving forward, EDGE is continuing the focus on US-made quality and delivery. The company is now also better suited to take on more custom industrial blade design jobs.

EDGE became a part of the Falfurrias Management Partners in 2024.

EDGE companies are leading producers of industrial machine knives and blades, industrial punches and related equipment, for a wide variety of markets.

We are a global leader in the manufacture of these products, with plants in Europe, North America, and Asia.
