Shovel loader jobs from JCB

A TOTAL of 63 jobs will be created at JCBs new wheeled shovel loaders factory at Cheadle, Staffs, due to be opened next month.

Designated as JCB Earthmovers Ltd, the 250,000 sq ft factory was started earlier this year while the process to equip the plant is nearing completion.

JCB also claims further jobs could be provided in the future as more manufacturing processes are brought in-house.

JCBs compact wheeled loaders are made at the adjacent Compact Products factory, while their larger contemporaries are manufactured at the companys international headquarters in Rocester. &#42
