JCB engines to power street sweepers

23 Oct 12 JCB has won a deal to supply engines to street cleaning equipment manufacturer Johnston Sweepers.

The agreement is initially worth almost £3m a year.

Johnston Sweepers  supplies its equipment to the public sector, contractors, the rental market and airports through a network of 200 global dealers.

JCB sees the contract as a significant milestone as it has been secured just weeks after the new Tier 4 Ecomax engine went into full production at JCB Power Systems in Foston, Derbyshire. JCB’s engines already power more than 70% of the construction and agricultural machines that  JCB manufactures every year.

JCB won the order against international competition. Production of the engines for Johnston Sweepers’ equipment will begin in December.
