The British construction equipment manufacturer, JCB, has announced that it will start manufacturing its own site dumpers at its Global Headquarters.

The move will requite the company to hire an additional 70 jobs within the next 12 months to meet demand and production.

The headquarters, located in a village called Rocester in Staffordshire, is to produce a range of dumpers, including the innovative seven-tonne payload JCB 7T-1 Front Tip Hi-Viz model.

The dumper is especially designed to meet industry concerns of safety and accidents related to equipment on construction sites.

“Reaction to the launch of this new range has been exceptional and customers can look forward to seeing the seven and three tonne models on the JCB stand at the Executive Hire Show in February.”

The firm’s seven-tonne payload dumper is part of a range of eight other machines meeting the one to nine tonne markets.
