About JCB Tools


The history of JCB is one of tireless innovation, ambition, and hard work. Beginning as a small enterprise constructing agricultural tipping trailers in 1945, JCB has evolved into a global manufacturing powerhouse that continually pushes the limits in its quest to be the best. Founder Joseph Cyril Bamford's motto, "Jamais content," or "never satisfied," epitomises the company's unwavering pursuit of excellence, and even he would undoubtedly be impressed by its current stature. 


With 22 facilities on four continents and over 750 dealers and distributors worldwide, JCB has become a major global brand recognised for its pioneering spirit.

These are thrilling times. In a mere 75 years, JCB has grown from a solitary individual in a Uttoxeter garage into a worldwide family of 11,000 employees that we are proud to call the JCB family. 


Although our accomplishments over the past 75 years have been significant, JCB believes in always looking forward to the next level of success and development. Presently, JCB is focused on continuing to innovate and push the boundaries in research and development, especially in sustainability, where energy costs and emissions are becoming an increasingly critical purchasing consideration. As new building standards and emissions regulations emerge, many of our clients will need to overhaul their businesses, and we will be there every step of the way to provide support, as we always have.
