In 1945, Joseph Cyril Bamford (Mr JCB) began using his engineering flair to invent new construction equipment. Right from the start, our machines were shining examples of innovative thinking and this commitment to innovation means we’ve always reinvested heavily in R&D, production processes and customer care.
This unique approach to construction machinery helps to explain how we continue to grow our global reach. Although we’re still a proud family business based in Staffordshire, United Kingdom, our machines operate across six continents, and we manufacture at 22 locations in the UK, Brazil, Germany, China, North America and India.
With a new £63m Brazilian factory, a £40m development of 17 new skid-steer loaders in the USA, and an £80m investment in our Ecomax T4 engine, we’re constantly honing our range of over 300 machines.
No wonder we’re the global market leader for construction equipment like backhoe loaders and telescopic handlers.
