Visit to the JCB Factory October 10th 2019

J.C. Bamford Excavators Ltd., universally known as JCB, is a British multinational corporation, with headquarters in Rocester, Staffordshire, manufacturing equipment for construction, agriculture, waste handling and demolition. On 10th October a group of members and guests visited the factory for a tour of the Visitor Centre and production facilities. Prior to the start of the tour we enjoyed lunch in the visitors' canteen. We then toured the Visitor Centre with guides and learned the history of JCB from its humble beginnings to the multinational company it is today. Examples of the various models developed over the years were superbly displayed. We then toured the production line and saw the "diggers" being built.

On the way home we called in at a traditional real ale pub for a light meal and some beer drinking. Some more than others!

Our thanks to Rtn. Andrew Bates for organising a superb day out.
