JCB Power Products has marked two special anniversaries with a cake big enough to feed the whole workforce.

It is 10 years since JCB Power Products produced and sold the first JCB generator to coincide with the launch of the JCB engine. It is also a year since the acquisition of major UK producer of diesel generators Broadcrown Ltd was completed.

The milestones were celebrated at JCB Power Products’ plant in Hixon near Stafford by the employees who assembled on the shop floor to enjoy a slice from a giant cake baked in the shape of a generator.

Mark Turner, Group Managing Director – Business Operations, said: “This has been an exciting 12 months. When I look around the world where we now have generator businesses, it’s evident that JCB Power Products will be a big part of our future.”

JCB Power Products MD Jonathan Garnham said: “It is 10 years since JCB went into power generation to coincide with the launch of the four cylinder diesel engine. We grew the business quickly and with the opportunity for us to come together a year ago with Broadcrown, we have really started to go from strength to strength now.”
