A-Plant places £35m order with JCB

Published:  08 November, 2016

A-Plant has placed its largest order this year with JCB in an investment totalling £35m. The company has purchased more than 1,200 new JCB machines, including a number of the company’s new JS130 13-tonne tracked excavators.

Many of the new JCB machines have already been delivered to A-Plant Service Centres across the UK and are now available to hire. This latest order comes on the back of a £50m order that A-Plant placed with JCB last year for around 1,500 machines, which represented one of the largest orders that JCB has ever won in the company’s history.

Asif Latief, marketing director for A-Plant, said: “This order is part of our investment programme to ensure our customers continue to get the most advanced, reliable, safe and environmentally friendly equipment.

“This year’s investment also includes 39 sets of JCB Broadcrown generators, which is a first for A-Plant and recognises JCB’s commitment to developing quality new products. Our order also included more JS130 13-tonne excavators, allowing A-Plant to meet customer demand within the market.”
