JCB took a milestone earlier this month after its award-winning 750,000th engine rolled off the production line.
According to the company, production started at JCB Power in 2004.
Additionally, expanding production to India seven years later helped the company “power” up to the “benchmark” number.
In a statement Lord Bamford, Chairman of JCB, said:
“750,000 engines is an important milestone considering that we only started manufacturing 17 years ago. “
“So much has been accomplished during this time with our engines, including two world ground speed records. “
“With the development of our new hydrogen engine, there is so much more to come. The future of our engine business looks very bright.
According to the company, it has manufactured more than half of the 750,000 engines in JCB Power Systems, which produces a range of 55 to 212 kW.
The motors are used to power JCB’s products and those of customers who manufacture equipment such as sweepers, screens, crushers and barges.
JCB India’s Delhi plant currently manufactures around 48 engine variants for the Indian market and for export.
Highlights of the past 17 years of engine production include the Queen’s Award for International Trade for JCB Power Systems in 2016, honoring a 325% growth in third-party sales.
