Production investment JCB has celebrated inauguration of its new Brazilian excavator plant where the first 20tonne machine has just rolled off the production line. The JS200LC tracked excavator has been bought by Jorcal Engenharia E Construções S/A, a company based in Sao Paulo State. The sale of the first Brazilian-made tracked excavator follows an investment in the new production facility next to the JCB's existing backhoe loader factory in the city of Sorocaba, Brazil. The construction of the new Brazilian excavator factory took just seven months and includes a new training area to enhance the service back up provided to excavator customers in the region. JCB has also recently doubled its backhoe loader production capacity in Brazil to help meet demand for machines in the region.
