JCB is to start manufacturing in the USA next year. The company is constructing a 500,000 sq ft factory at Savannah, Georgia with a view to production extending to several thousand backhoe loaders each year. JCB claims to already hold a significant slice of the US backhoe market – worth some 30,000 units – and says the Savannah plant should enable further expansion in the US, Canada and South America.
