THE first of a range of new site dumpers rolled off the production line at JCB in Rocester this week.
The company announced plans to manufacture its own range of the popular machine last year and production is now underway – a move which will create 70 new jobs in the next 12 months.
The range includes the innovative seven-tonne payload Front Tip Hi-Viz model designed to directly address growing industry concerns over accidents and serious injuries involving site dumpers on construction sites.
