JCB is a family-owned company that has enjoyed huge success and expansion, growing from one man building agricultural equipment to a global brand. The company is still privately owned by the Bamford family and the present Chairman is Sir Anthony Bamford, the eldest son of Joseph Cyril Bamford CBE.
Today, JCB has 22 plants on five continents manufacturing more than 300 products. It's an amazing British success story and one that couldn't have come about if it hadn't been for our people.
JCB people are at the heart of our business, constantly driving the business forward and amazing us with their incredible ideas that result in our industry-leading innovations. Our founder, Joseph Cyril Bamford, always talked about a 'sense or urgency' and being 'never content'. JCB people have this 'can do' attitude and know that only the highest standards are acceptable. It's how they continue to play such a crucial role in our ongoing success.
