This particular AWD Limited firm should not be confused with the other British firm of similar initials AWD, more properly known as AWD Engineering Limited that started in 1970 at Dunstable in Bedfordshire. This company AWD of Bedfordshire is owned by David John Brown the founder of DJB.

Cheshire Engineering Co. Ltd. of Camberley, Surrey was founded by a Mr. John Andrews to build mechanical post-hole borers based on a design by Highway Trailer Co. of Edgerton, Wisconsin, using British made components and British Ford industrial engines. The early hole-borers were mounted on ex-WW2 military chassis, but when these proved inadequate for the arduous work, All Wheel Drive Ltd. was formed at the Camberley works to modify readily available British lorries into multi-drives. The company grew quickly from 14 staff in 1955 to over 650 by 1962.
