In 1945, Joseph Cyril Bamford (Mr. JCB) began using his engineering flair to invent new construction equipment. Right from the start, JCB's machines were shining examples of innovative thinking. This commitment to innovation means they have always reinvested heavily in R&D, production processes and customer care.

This unique approach to building construction machinery helps explain how JCB continues to grow its global reach. Although they're still a family business, their machines operate across six continents and they manufacture at 22 locations in the UK, Brazil, Germany, China, North America and India.
