JCB kit for Chinese earthquake relief
16 May 2008 . BY ....
JCB, the world’s third largest manufacturer of construction equipment, is donating a fleet of diggers worth $600,000 and sending a team of drivers to help with relief efforts in the south west region of China devastated by an earthquake.

The gift of six 3CX backhoe loader diggers was offered by JCB Chairman Sir Anthony Bamford as the full horror of the earthquake unfolded. The machines are destined for the earthquake zone in Sichuan Province and are now on their way from JCB’s factory in Shanghai, where the company manufactures backhoe loaders specifically for the Chinese market.

JCB China is also sending six operators, including British JCB employee Joe Cook, aged 30, who works for the company in Shanghai as Product Promotions Manager.

Cook, from Malton, North Yorkshire, volunteered to head for the earthquake zone with five Chinese colleagues. All are skilled at operator training and will stay with the machines in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province, and train local drivers in the use of the machines in order for them to gain the full benefit of their versatility.

Four of the machines have already been earmarked for use by the Engineering Department of the Chinese Armed Military Police and the Engineering Corps of the Peoples’ Liberation Army.

Sir Anthony Bamford said: "No-one watching the scenes of devastation on television could fail to be touched by the plight of the thousands of people affected by this terrible tragedy.

"I hope in some small way that JCB’s donation of backhoe loaders can help the thousands of people who have been left trapped and homeless by this earthquake."

The gift follows a series of other JCB machinery donations in recent years to other parts of the world hit by natural disasters, including the Asian Tsunami.
