JCB India, a premier manufacturer of Earthmoving and Construction Equipment, recently celebrated a significant milestone with the production of its 500,000th Construction Equipment.

Since its establishment in India in 1979, JCB has been integral to the nation’s infrastructure development, boasting six manufacturing facilities that export “Made in India” machines to over 130 countries.

Speaking at the occasion, Lord Bamford says “India is today one of the strongest economies in the world. There has been a significant focus on infrastructure development over the past decade and we are proud to have been a part of this growth through our machines”

He further adds, “We have continued to invest in India since 1979, that was when we set up our first factory here at Ballabgarh. India now plays an important part in our global business, as it is one of our largest markets, and also contributes to the global supply chain for JCB”

The 500,000th machine, a Telehandler, is a versatile machine for Material Handling. It is a revolutionary new way to handle Material at heights in a Safer and more Productive manner as compared to traditional options.  

Deepak Shetty, CEO and Managing Director, JCB India says, “It is only fitting that the 500,000th machine to roll out from JCB is Telehandler.
