A Few Words About JCB

A family company on a global scale.

JCB is no ordinary company. From the dreams of one man, Joseph Cyril Bamford, we have grown into the world’s biggest privately owned construction equipment company by volume. Since 1945, the same attention to detail, passion for progress and family spirit has taken us from strength to strength. Nowadays JCB operates across all five continents, manufacturing at 17 factories in the UK, Brazil, Germany, China, North America and India.With 1,500 dealerships and depots selling and supporting our products in over 150 countries, we are one of the top three manufacturers of construction equipment with some of the finest engineering facilities in the world.

A history of world-class innovation.

Our business has always been driven by innovation, using only the most advanced technology, components and processes, meticulous design and rigorous testing. Evidence of this doesn’t come much more powerful than our revolutionary JCB Dieselmax engine. Having grabbed the headlines when it smashed the world landspeed record at 350.092mph, it is now providing our customers with tomorrow’s performance today.

Sustainability in all we do.

As a manufacturer of working machinery, operating in both established and emerging markets, we accept the challenge of helping to deliver economic and 1960’s environmental sustainability. Product innovations that provide the right solutions to our customers have been a vital part of our history and will be key to our sustainable future. But in addition to developing cleaner and more efficient machines, we have a commitment to ensuring our manufacturing facilities meet the highest environmental standards.

A commitment to our customers that goes on.

That’s a fact we remind ourselves of constantly, and it’s the reason our customers are at the heart of everything we do. Whatever a customer needs, we make it our mission to provide world-class support and 100% satisfaction. At the heart of this is a dedication to minimizing machine downtime. So our state-of-the-art World Parts Center dispatches more than a million genuine parts and attachments every week, with an ‘Anywhere in 24 hours’ strategy. Our JCB- trained technicians provide excellent, expert customer care, whether it’s routine servicing or something more urgent.

JCB in North America

JCB has been in North America for over 40 years, but made a huge commitment to the market in 2000, when the North American business and manufacturing center was built in Savannah, Georgia. From this 500,000 square foot facility, JCB supports over 120 dealers in the United States and Canada, providing parts, training and expertise. The Savannah manufacturing floor produces the world’s safest skid steer and compact tracked loader.

From Savannah, we are also proud to manufacture as the High Mobility Engineer Excavator (HMEE) a high- speed fully armored backhoe loader currently in use by the U.S. Army in Iraq and Afghanistan.
