History of JCB
The very first machine that Mr JCB built was a tipping trailer he made using a £1 welding set and sold at the local market for £45! That was in 1945.
In 1948, there were 6 people working for the company which then made a hydraulic tipping trailer - the very first in the whole of Europe.
In 1953, along came the first machine to be stamped with the JCB logo you see on machines today. This was a Backhoe Loader (what we all call a digger!) and it's the machine that everyone nowadays calls a JCB.
In the 1960s, Mr JCB began the tradition of cool JCB stunts to publicise the company name. This is how the world-famous Dancing Diggers started. If you've never seen the Dancing Diggers before please view our quick movie.
Today, JCB has over 7,000 employees and we make 279 different machines. But we're still based in the Midlands so we've got our own JCB jet and helicopter that we use to fly in our customers.
