Scot JCB open new depot to service North Lancashire and South Cumbria

JCB have appointed Scot JCB as their distributor for JCB agricultural machinery in North Lancashire and South Cumbria. The new depot has an experienced sales, service and parts team, fully equipped workshop, and a parts department with access to Scot JCB's £2million parts stockholding.

Opened in January, the Carnforth branch is located at Intack Farm, Nether Kellet, just a few minutes from junction 35 on the M6. Carnforth extends Scot JCB's southern agricultural network which includes depots at Carlisle, Dumfries, Newcastle and Alnwick.

Scot JCB has been supplying farms with JCB's since JCB first started making agricultural Loadalls in 1977, but their association with Britain's best known machinery manufacturer goes back much further, over 50 years in fact. They sold their first JCB machine in 1956 and took on the franchise for the famous yellow diggers two years later.

Since then they have grown into a highly specialised machinery distribution company employing 180 people. They serve customers in the North of England and Scotland through a network of ten branches from Muir of Ord to their newest depot at Carnforth in Lancashire.

Scot JCB are the largest JCB farm machinery distributor in Britain, well used to looking after the needs of their agricultural customers in Highland, Lancashire, Cumbria, Northumberland and Dumfries and Galloway. Covering a large and diverse territory gives them additional challenges to meet their customers' need for fast and efficient field service to keep their

machinery working at peak efficiency. Their efforts to meet this challenge have not gone unrewarded as in 2005 they won JCB's worldwide award for customer service excellence.

JCB's growing agricultural range now includes Fastrac tractors up to 225hp., a wide range of materials handlers including Skidsteers, Loadalls from 1.5 tonne to 4 tonne capacity, high- output articulated wheeled loaders and Telemasters, plus the hard-working 4x4 and 6x4 Workmax utility vehicles and the increasingly popular JCB range of generators.
