Many are in the utilities and construction sectors; the work they do is essential, underpins our regional infrastructure and has to continue. To do that - they need the right tools for the job. We are proud to be making this investment and to be investing in British manufacturing with JCB and trading with their local distributor, TC Harrison JCB."
