After the coronavirus outbreak, JCB and other major industries in the UK have shut down their business units. But JCB has aimed to provide aid through manufacturing ventilators to help the country in overcoming the coronavirus pandemic. With Uttoxeter factory called on reopening along with 50 members rejoining, the digger giant stands tall to serve the nation.
The production line of cab systems are now making efforts in fabrication of special steel housings at JCB recalled factory location. The vacuum cleaner specialist manufacturer Dyson helps in designing new ventilators. As Dyson receives regulatory approval for its design, the already set to go JCB housings with 10,000 numbers can be used for manufacturing.
The initiatives have taken place for delivering the ventilators after JCB initially closed down it’s Staffordshire factory, after which Dyson tied up to take the further process of designing. As a recap, JCB held-down its business in the UK on 18 March after all the 9 JCB manufacturing plants were hit by the fall-in-demand for its products.
