A word with UKPOOTY sponsor – JCB


A company that needs no introduction and is synonymous with the backhoe loader is at the UK Plant Operator of the Year to get behind the backhoe event.

“It’s really important for us to be sponsoring this backhoe challenge today,” said JCB application and training manager Georgina Williams, “because we know that young operators are not necessarily enthusiastic about getting on to backhoes so today is important for us to showcase the backhoe and get people on it and giving it a go and having a really good time.

We do want to encourage more youngsters into the industry and this is the perfect day, a family day.”
