JCB Plant

JCB (JC Bamford Excavators) is the UK's largest construction, agricultural and industrial equipment manufacturer. Based in Staffordshire, the family-owned company produces more than 300 different machines in 17 locations around the world.  

JCB is most well known for its global market-leading backhoe loaders and telescopic handlers. However the firm also produces mini excavators, skid steers, compaction machinery, crawler and wheeled excavators, wheeled loaders, high speed tractors and articulated haulers.  

JCB manufactures most of its own components, including transmissions and axles, and has more recently started development of its own range of diesel engines. To prove their capabilities JCB claimed the World Land Speed record for a car powered by diesel engines in 2006.

JCB offers a wide range of powered attachments, designed to work with its carrier machines and also produces generators and lighting towers. Its products are well known around the world and command reasonably strong residual values, particularly in Europe.

The company has more than 1,500 dealer depots worldwide, with six independent JCB dealers in England, Wales and Scotland. There are two dealers in Ireland. Between these eight companies there are 92 depots offering parts, sales and service back-up, along with JCB Finance and JCB Insurance products. The firm is particularly known for its strong parts back-up, with a World Parts Centre based at the head office site near Uttoxeter.
