JCB helps Haiti Relief

JCB 3CX Backhoe Loader headed to Haiti

JCB is donating $150,000 worth of equipment to help the disaster relief in Haiti, following last week’s devastating earthquake. “There is clearly a lack of equipment on the island, and I hope our gift of JCB machines will help in some small way to alleviate that suffering and in the rebuilding in the aftermath of the earthquake,” said Anthony Bamford, JCB’s chairman.

Two JCB 3CX backhoe loaders will be made available to the U.S. Government and its aid agencies. “We are working with the State Department and the U.S. Southern Command who are coordinating the massive relief effort in Haiti,” said John Patterson, chairman and CEO of JCB. “We want utilize the most efficient channels available to ensure that the machines reach the agencies and the people that need them. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti.”

In the past, JCB also donated equipment to aid other areas struck by natural disasters, including the Sichuan province in China after the 2008 earthquake; Thailand, southern India, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia after the 2004 tsunami; and the city of Padang following last year’s earthquake that struck off the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
