The multinational British company JCB was established in 1945 and has its headquarters in Rocester, Staffordshire, England. It produces equipment for the construction, agricultural, waste management, and demolition industries. The word "JCB" is commonly used colloquially to refer to mechanical excavators and diggers, despite the fact that it is still a trademark. Even the Oxford English Dictionary mentions it.
In the month of October 1945, Joseph Cyril Bamford founded Joseph Cyril Bamford Excavators Ltd. in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, England. A 3.7 by 4.6 m. lock-up garage was hired by him (12 by 15 ft). He built his first vehicle, a tipping trailer, out of wartime supplies using a welding gear he acquired used from English Electric for £2-10s (= £2.50). The sides and bottom of the trailer were built from steel sheet salvaged from air raid shelters. The day Anthony was born, he sold the trailer at a local market for £45 (plus a part-exchanged farm cart) and then quickly constructed a new trailer. [Needs citation] He once manufactured automobiles in Eckersley's coal yard in Uttoxeter. The original trailer and the welding supplies have both been preserved.
In 1948, the company employed six people and created the first hydraulic tipping trailer in Europe. After relocating to an old cheese factory in Rocester in 1950, it continued to employ six people. A year later, Bamford began to paint his goods yellow. He developed the first backhoe loader for the business in 1953, the same year the JCB logo was unveiled. The design was made by Derby Media and advertisement designer Leslie Smith. In 1957, the business unveiled the "hydra-digga," a multifunctional machine that combined an excavator with a huge loader for the benefit of the construction and agricultural industries.
By 1964, JCB had sold over 3,000 3C backhoe loaders. The first 360-degree excavator was introduced the following year with the JCB 7. In 1978, the Loadall device was unveiled. The next year, the company started doing business in India. A 1991 joint venture for the production of excavators between the business and Sumitomo of Japan was dissolved in 1998. Two years later, a JCB facility was completed at Pooler, Georgia, which is close to Savannah, Georgia. In Brazil, a factory was officially opened the next year.
Vibromax, a German equipment maker, was acquired by JCB in 2005. In the same year, it began a second manufacturing facility in Pudong, China. Planning for a new £40 million JCB Heavy Products plant started with the 2007 introduction of a competition for architectural designs organised by RIBA Competitions. The next year, the business began relocating from its previous location in Uttoxeter on Pinfold Street to the new location next to the A50; the Pinfold Street location was destroyed in 2009. In that year, JCB planned to make India its primary industrial hub. Its factory in Ballabgarh, Haryana, was going to house the biggest backhoe loader production facility on the planet. After the financial crisis of 2008, JCB eliminated 2,000 jobs, although it hired up to 200 more people in 2010.
In 2013, JCB opened its fourth manufacturing site in India.
In India, JCB sold three out of every four pieces of construction equipment, and the country's business generated 17.5% of the company's total revenue, according to reports from 2014.
Back in 1953, JCB introduced the legendary backhoe loader, which is still as innovative and cutting-edge today. We have continuously reinvented it to keep one step ahead of the competition and satisfy the needs of our clientele. We presently hold the title of the manufacturer with the biggest sales volume worldwide, with nearly half of all sold backhoes being a JCB.
