JCB machines work on doorstep A50 project

A FLEET of JCB excavators has been playing a major role in a road construction project on the doorstep of the factory where they were built.
The A50 Growth Corridor Project A is part of the National Infrastructure Plan.
Work includes constructing a grade-separated junction on the A50 dual carriageway to the west of Uttoxeter.
Derbyshire-based earth-moving specialist JC Balls & Sons and the JCB company are operating a mixed fleet of equipment on the project, including three 22-tonne JCB JS220 crawler excavators, a 36-tonne JS370 and a wheeled JS175W – all manufactured at the neighbouring JCB Heavy Products factory.
Other JCB machinery being used includes a 57C-1 compact excavator, a JCB 718 articulated dump truck and a JCB VM115 soil compactor.
One of the JS220 excavators has been bought specifically for the A50 project by long-standing JCB customer JC Balls & Sons, of Ambergate, Belper, a company which was founded in 1963 with a single JCB 3 backhoe loader model.
JCB heavy products managing director, Buta Atwal, said: “It is fantastic to see JCB excavators at work on our doorstep.
“There is huge pride across the workforce seeing machines manufactured here at JCB Heavy Products at work every day on a high profile project which is bringing huge benefits to the area.”
