JCB is a British Multinational corporation, with headquarters in Rocester, Staffordshire, engaged in the manufacture of equipment for construction, demolition and agriculture. It is the world's third-largest construction equipment manufacturer.
JCB has made its name in the tractor world by producing one of the first such machines that features proper suspension and is capable of travelling at speed on roads.
The JCB Fastrac entered production in 1990. Prior to this design, the suspension was difficult because of the fixed-height connections required to farm machinery, and tractors were notoriously slow on the roads. Dependent on the model, the Fastrac can travel at 50 km/h, 65 km/h or 75 km/h (40 mph). The machine was featured on the BBC television programme Tomorrow's World.
From 2006 the company also produces a range of compact tractors designed for grounds-care, horticultural, and light agricultural duties.
