JCB's story is one of innovation, ambition and sheer hard work.

From small beginnings building agricultural tipping trailers in 1945, to the global force in manufacturing the company has become today, JCB has constantly pushed the boundaries in its desire to be the best. Company founder Joseph Cyril Bamford’s motto was, ‘Jamais content’, and that is exactly right – JCB is never content with its achievements. However, even he would be amazed by what the company has become.

Today, JCB has 22 plants on four continents and more than 750 dealers around the world. These are exciting times. In just 68 years JCB has grown from one man in a garage in Uttoxeter to a major global brand renowned for its pioneering spirit. All of this is down to people – an 11,000-strong worldwide force that makes up the JCB family.

JCB’s achievements over the past 68 years have been considerable, but it believes in always looking ahead to the next development, the next level of success. JCB is continuing to innovate and push the boundaries in research and development; in particular within the area of sustainability, where energy costs and emissions are becoming an increasingly important purchasing consideration.

Many JCB customers will need to reinvent their businesses to meet new building standards and emissions legislation, and JCB will be there to support them every step of the way, as it has always been.
