Jewson places record JCB order

Jewson has bought 900 machines from JCB in the biggest order ever placed by the builders’ merchant’s Tool Hire division.

The deal, which includes electric models, is said to be worth more than £12 million and comes as the two companies mark 20 years of doing business together. 

The latest purchases include 19C-1 E electric mini excavators and 1TE electric site dumpers, chosen for their quiet performance and zero emissions at the point of use.

Steve Fox, JCB Global Major Accounts MD who is pictured (left), said: “We are delighted to mark 20 years of supplying Jewson Tool Hire with an order of such magnitude, which is testament to the quality of JCB’s compact equipment range. The addition of electrically-powered machines demonstrates that Jewson is looking to the future and the opportunities that zero emissions machines present.”

The order also includes JCB 8008 micro excavators, JCB 16C-1 mini excavators, 1T site dumpers and VMT160-80 vibratory tandem rollers. 

Jewson Business Development Director Mark Esling commented: “JCB is a key partner, and we are proud to mark such an important anniversary of working together. 

"We are aligned on our core values of supporting the trade and empowering builders, tradespeople, and contractors across all industries with the best products, services and expertise and we look forward to a bright future together,” he added.

Jewson first bought JCB machines in 2003 when the company purchased 70 JCB micro excavators.
