In 1902, the Company changed their name to Fodens Limited and in 1911 Edwin Foden died and the Company was run by his two sons, William and Edwin Richard. Edwin Richard Foden left the Company in 1930 and established the ERF Company (after his initials Edwin Richard Foden). Fodens Limited supplied the War Office with steam wagons and traction engines during the First World War, and in 1929 began the change from steam to diesel. The first diesel engine truck was sold in 1931 and had a Gardner 6L2 engine, with a four speed gear box, and was rated for six tons.
