JCB Power Products takes the cake with recent milestones

JCB Group MD of Business Operations Mark Turner cuts the generator cake for the 10 year celebration – watched (l-r) by Annette Squires, JCB Power Products MD Jonathan Garnham, Romy Hocknell and the whole workforce.

JCB Power Products recently celebrated two special anniversaries and marked the occasion with a themed cake for its workforce.

The company celebrated 10 years since producing and selling the first JCB generator to coincide with the launch of the JCB engine and also celebrated one year since the acquisition of UK diesel generator producer, Broadcrown Ltd.

The firm held a celebration at JCB Power Products’ plant in Hixon near Stafford where employees gathered on the shop floor for a slice of cake in the shape of a generator.

Mark Turner, group managing director – business operations, commented, “This has been an exciting 12 months. When I look around the world where we now have generator businesses, it’s evident that JCB Power Products will be a big part of our future.”

JCB Power Products managing director, Garnham, added, “It is 10 years since JCB went into power generation to coincide with the launch of the four cylinder diesel engine. We grew the business quickly and with the opportunity for us to come together a year ago with Broadcrown, we have really started to go from strength to strength now.”
