CONSTRUCTION work on a new factory in East Staffordshire is forging ahead as it targets a summer opening. The new £50 million JCB Cab Systems factory next to JCB Heavy Products and the World Parts Centre at Uttoxeter is on course to be completed slightly ahead of schedule ready for high-tech production line facilities to be installed from March onwards.
