A £50m facility which will create hundreds of jobs and double the production of cabs used on JCB machines is being built in Staffordshire.

Work is under way on the 350,000ft² facility for JCB Cab Systems next to the A50 in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. The hi-tech factory will have the capacity to produce around 100,000 cabs a year for JCB products, including Loadall telehandlers and Fastrac tractors.

The factory – next to two existing JCB facilities – will include a computer-controlled production line, fully-automated painting facility and robotic welding. It is expected to create more than 200 new jobs by 2022.

JCB chief executive Graeme Macdonald said the investment was one of the biggest in the company’s history. “This new factory will be the most advanced and productive cab facility in the world and will bring even greater levels of efficiency.”

JCB Cab Systems currently employs more than 400 people at its existing site at Rugeley, Staffordshire. The new plant is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019.
