JCB has secured an annual contract with Terex GB Ltd worth approximately $7 million. Under the terms of the agreement, JCB will supply Terex GB Ltd with engines to power site dumpers made at the firm’s Coventry plant. The deal comes just as JCB celebrates a landmark 10 years of engine manufacturing.
The engines, which are manufactured by JCB Power Systems in Derbyshire, will be the latest fuel-efficient Ecomax 55kW/74HP stage3B/Tier 4 Final models. Initially, they will power two Terex site dumpers in its range: the TA6 and TA6S.
“The engine supply contract is a major milestone for the JCB Power Systems business," said JCB CEO Graeme Macdonald. "It is one of the biggest engine supply deals in the company’s history and is a testament to the reliability and efficiency advantages that the JCB Ecomax engine offers customers.”
JCB began producing engines at its plant in Foston, Derbyshire at the end of 2004 and engine production was extended to India in 2011. To date JCB has produced 350,000 engines globally.
