  8. JCB's owners and management were big and very vocal supporters of Brexit, always available to be interviewed against the CBI, Branson and all the other remainer rent seekers. They really made a difference in terms of providing sensible real world counterpoints to 'Project Fear' (TM HMG Treasury) and were particularly effective in public meetings in the Midlands / North of England - London area people not really understanding what manufacturing is

  9. they make a lot of bits in China as well
    I gather they are not well thought of in Germany after the way they shut down Vibromax
     
  10. Nice of you to put a positive spin on a Great British company. Have you ever thought of a career in PR ? .
    JCB has 18 factories in the UK, Germany, North and South America (Brasil), Australia, India, and China.
    They have very successfully exploited the military market.
