JCB Marks Millionth Machine Milestone In Colourful Style - continued

 

Party time as Sir Anthony Bamford and workers at JCB celebrate the production of the 1,000,000th machine

JCB Chairman Sir Anthony Bamford said: “It’s taken JCB more than 67 years to produce its millionth machine. Incredibly, one third of those machines has been produced in the last six years.

Reaching the million milestone is the result of a huge effort by the JCB team past and present and it’s an achievement everyone can be justifiably proud of.

Given our continuing growth, JCB’s two millionth machine will be produced in considerably less time.”

More than 2,500 JCB dealers and customers will be joining in the celebrations in the next five weeks as the company embarks on the next phase of its global growth programme by staging the biggest ever product conference in its 67-year history. The event in Staffordshire is showcasing all the latest machines in JCB’s construction, agricultural and industrial ranges.

JCB CEO Alan Blake added: “The global dealer and customer conference is the biggest in JCB’s history and unveiling our latest product innovations to delegates, will be a key driver for our future growth. Given the scale of the event, JCB’s investment in this conference is also providing a very positive spin off for the local and regional economy.”

During the conference JCB will demonstrate more than 100 of its innovative machines as well as present technical details on their features and benefits. Over the period of the conference JCB has booked a total of 4,700 hotel room nights for delegates from almost 130 countries.

Change at the top

As Alan Blake prepares to retire as Chief Executive Officer for JCB, the company announces the replacement. Alan, 63, joined JCB in 1989 and became CEO in 2010 after holding a number of senior positions in the company and after leading the biggest production expansion in JCB’s history.

 Since his appointment as CEO, Alan has presided over the company’s return to sales and production growth against a backdrop of continued economic uncertainty around the world. Alan will remain as a Senior Advisor and Board Member of the company. His successor will be Graeme Macdonald (right), 45, who became Chief Executive Officer Designate from June 1.

Graeme has held a variety of senior roles during his 16 years at JCB and was latterly the company’s Chief Operating Officer. He was previously MD of the company’s Backhoe Loader Business Unit, based at the World HQ in Rocester and also held the position of President of JCB Inc based at JCB’s North American HQ in Savannah, Georgia.
