10.03.2020 Congratulation JCB on 750,000 Backhoe's
Join us in congratulating JCB for the amazing milestone of producing 750,000 backhoes! Check out their story below!
JCB today celebrated a unique milestone as its 750,000th backhoe loader rolled off the production line.
The landmark machine was driven off the line at the company’s factory in Rocester, Staffordshire – the very location where the first JCB backhoe was manufactured almost 70 years ago.
It was in 1953 that company founder, the late Joseph Cyril Bamford CBE, conceived the idea of the JCB backhoe loader, which created, for the first time, a single machine which combined a front shovel and rear excavator arm. In its first full year of production in 1954, just 35 of the machines were produced and it took more than 20 years for the first 50,000 to be made. JCB now manufactures backhoe loaders in the UK, India, Brazil and the USA.
