A-Plant’s £50m order this year follows a £35m one in 2014.

Since buying its first JCB in the late 1980s, A-Plant has now bought more than 10,000 machines from JCB.

The deal includes micro, mini and midi excavators, Loadall telescopic handlers, tracked excavators and the new site dumpers that JCB launched earlier this year. All the machines are being supplied by dealer Greenshields JCB.

A-Plant marketing director Asif Latief said: “This is the biggest order A-Plant has ever placed for JCB equipment and this substantial investment in new JCB machines signals our intent to offer our customers one of the youngest fleets in the industry.”

JCB chief executive Graeme Macdonald said: “This is order is very significant as it is one of the largest JCB has ever won. We are delighted that A-Plant has chosen JCB to supply such an extensive range of products.”
