JCB Celebrates 1 Million Machines

JCB is celebrating the production of its one millionth machine, a silver 22-ton JS220 tracked excavator. The manufacturer made the announcement Thursday.

To commemorate the event, the company unveiled a graphic wrap covering 9,700 sq. ft. and 207 windows of the glass frontage at its headquarters in Rocester, Staffordshire, U.K. The accomplishment took more than 67 years.
