JCB was named after its founder, Joseph Cyril Bamford a World War II veteran, British engineer, and businessman. Founded in 1945 in Staffordshire, England it all started in a 10’ x 15’ garage. Joseph began by manufacturing agricultural tipping trailers, (one at a time, by himself) and selling them at a local market. Three years later, he had 6 employees and they called these trailers called Si-draulics. From there, he continued to build his construction equipment empire based on hard work, innovation, and investment in ever-evolving manufacturing technologies.
Their current product line includes backhoes, excavators, compact excavators, compact track loaders, tractors, articulated telescopic handlers, skid steer loaders, wheel loaders, and wheeled excavators. JCB serves several different industries including construction, agriculture, demolition, government, and defense.
