History of JCB

JCB is an iconic British company and we are pleased to have links with JCB going back over 50 years!

JCB was founded in 1945 by Joseph Cyril Bamford, when he made his first vehicle, a tipping trailer from war-surplus materials using a second-hand welding set. He sold this for profit on the same day his son Anthony was born.

Becoming one of the most famous of British Engineering success stories, JCB continues to be owned by the Bamford family today.

Still based in Staffordshire, JCB invest heavily in research and development and listen to industry demands, keeping JCB at the cutting edge of innovation in design, operator comfort and safety.
