JCB – UKPOOTY24 Sponsor


The story of JCB 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 our desire to be the best. Today, they have 22 plants on four continents and more than 750 dealers around the world.

These are exciting times. In just 75 years they have gone from one man in a garage in Uttoxeter to major global brand renowned for its pioneering spirit. All of this is down to their people – a 11,000-strong worldwide force that makes up the JCB family they are so proud of. Our achievements over the past 75 years have been considerable, but at JCB we believe in always looking ahead to the next development, the next level of success. As we speak, 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 of their customers will need to reinvent their businesses to meet new building standards and emissions legislation, and they will be there to support them every step of the way, as we have always been.

Do take the time to read through the innovation milestones over the decades on the timeline below.
