Earthmoving and construction equipment manufacturing major JCB rolled out its 3,000th machine manufactured at its Jaipur plant during an event organised under tagline ‘Made in Rajasthan’.
Chief Minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje, JCB Group Chairman Lord Bamford, CEO JCB Group Graeme MacDonald, and JCB India’s Managing Director & CEO Vipin Sondhi attended the event. ‘Made in Rajasthan’ showcased JCB’s commitment to world-class manufacturing in the state.
Speaking on the occasion, Smt. Raje said, “I am happy to visit again the JCB facility which I had the pleasure of inaugurating. I am delighted that this world-class facility is not only creating employment opportunities but is also exporting products. I am also happy that JCB has created opportunities for women in what is considered a male bastion, by having over 30 per cent of the workforce on the shopfloor as women. By exporting products manufactured in Rajasthan, JCB is a brand ambassador taking ‘Made in Rajasthan’ to the world.”
Lord Bamford said, “Our operations in India started in 1979 and for nearly four decades, JCB has been contributing to building India’s infrastructure. The opportunities for growth which India presents are significant and thus, we remain committed not just to building machines, but also in making a positive difference in the lives of the people and communities whom we work closely with.”
