JCB employs more than 1,200 people

Manufacturer JCB has celebrated the 40th anniversary of its Loadall telescopic handler.

Built for lifting and loading tasks, the machine is used across a number of industries including waste management, construction and agriculture.

JCB has sold more than 220,000 Loadalls, generating more than £7 billion in sales.

Daily output of JCB telehandlers at its Staffordshire headquarters is currently at its highest levels since the launch, with one Loadall rolling off the production line every six minutes.

Lord Anthony Bamford, JCB chairman, said: “When we launched the Loadall in 1977, we sold just 64 machines that year but we were very confident that the telescopic handler would grow in popularity simply because it made jobs so much easier.”
