JCB checks in for growth with investment in hotel
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
JCB is investing around £1 million in purchasing and transforming a former budget hotel in Uttoxeter into high-class accommodation for employees and visitors to its World HQ.

Completion of the acquisition of the Travelodge next to the A50 is scheduled for next month and once the deal is finalised, JCB plans an extensive refurbishment programme for the 32-room venue.

It will create much needed accommodation for UK and overseas employees visiting the nearby World HQ at Rocester, as well as undergraduates completing their year in industry at JCB and dealer staff attending training courses at the company.

JCB Group Property Director Alan Thomson said: “As JCB forges ahead with its ambitious global growth programme, we have an increasing number of people visiting the World HQ and the nearby JCB International Training Centre, as well as a growing number of graduates and undergraduates joining the business.

“Accommodation near to JCB’s World HQ is in short supply so our investment in this facility will plug a much needed gap in availability of rooms.

“Many of the people visiting the World HQ come here for product training which is crucial for the continuation of our growth and to support customers in our export markets.”
