750,000th JCB engine milestone reached at Derbyshire plant

750,000th JCB engine milestone reached at Derbyshire plantJCB is celebrating a major milestone for its award-winning engine which has just come off the production line at JCB Power Systems in Derbyshire. Production first began in 2004 and was extended to a plant in India in 2011 — which has helped to propel JCB to the landmark figure.

JCB chairman Lord Bamford said: “750,000 engines is quite some milestone when you consider that we only started manufacturing 17 years ago. So much has been achieved over that time with our engines including two world land speed records. With the development of our new hydrogen motor, there is so much more to come and the future for our engine business looks very bright.”

More than half of the 750,000 engines have been made at the JCB Power Systems plant, which produces a wide range from 55-212kW. The engines are used to power JCB’s products as well as those of customers producing equipment as diverse as road sweepers, screeners and crushers and barges.

JCB India’s Delhi plant currently manufactures around 48 engine variants for the Indian market and for export.

Among the highlights of the past 17 years of engine production was a Queen’s Award for International Trade for JCB Power Systems in 2016 in recognition of a 325% increase in third-party sales.
