JCB North America has made equipment available including a 3CX backhoe loader and a 437 wheel loader, together valued at over $300,000 to assist with local cleanup efforts in the Savannah area, which sustained significant damage from Hurricane Matthew in early October. Preliminary estimates say that the hurricane caused nearly $100 million worth of property damage in the state of Georgia alone.
In early 2015, JCB received what was then the company’s largest single vessel shipment of 341 construction and agricultural machines to the Georgia Ports Authority from its manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom. That record was broken earlier this week when JCB’s U.K. facility shipped over 400 machines worth more than $35 million to the Georgia Ports Authority. Over the next few weeks, JCB will inspect and configure the machines to customer specifications at its North American headquarters in Savannah, before shipping the units to authorized distributors throughout North America.
Matsqui Ag Repair, located in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, has joined JCB’s dealer network as Matsqui JCB. The company now offers a variety of JCB’s agricultural equipment including wheel loaders, rough-terrain forklifts, Fastrac high speed tractors, mini excavators, Loadall telescopic handlers and the world’s safest and most innovative skid steers and compact track loaders with unique side-entry doors and a patented, single-arm PowerBoom.
By partnering with its customers, JCB is able to offer tailored specifications and option packages to suit a wide range of industry sectors. Now, the JCB 8018 Contractor specification model provides utility contractors with a compact excavator specifically designed to work on busy urban jobsites.
JCB now offers double the number of hydraulic breakers designed to work with its range of excavators, backhoe loaders and compact equipment lines by launching its “Contractor Hammer Range." Contractor breakers will be available alongside the existing professional line of hydraulic hammers. Both Professional and Contractor breakers will come with a three-year warranty.
JCB is donating a 3CX backhoe loader to help rescue and clean-up operations in Ecuador, which was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Saturday, resulting in the deaths of at least 570 people and injuries to over 7,000 people. It has been reported that 25,000 people remain in shelters as a consequence of the devastating earthquake that has been described by the country’s President Rafael Correa as the biggest tragedy in Ecuador in seven decades.
JCB’s Loadall has been one of the world’s most popular telescopic handlers for many years, with innovative design and engineering excellence.
