Message From JCB India MD & CEO


The first quarter of 2016 has been an interesting and a very eventful time. After four years of sustained contraction, we are now witnessing growth again. The green shoots continue to be more visible and we feel that we are on the path to revival.

With the recent Union Budget giving the much needed impetus to the rural economy and to physical infrastructure, we are hopeful of seeing stronger growth in the coming days.

The ‘Make in India’ week held in Mumbai, in the month of February was a fine example of the Government’s commitment to manufacturing. It saw JCB participate in a big way with a display of over 20 products in the largest outdoor stand at the event.

We also had our ‘Annual Dealer Conference’ in February at Kochi - a three day event which had the JCB and dealer teams interact and align the vision for the year 2016.

We continue to focus on making “the best better” by having launched the new ecoXcellence range of Backhoe Loaders. This new range of machines gives unmatched advantages in terms of fuel efficiency and maintenance costs. During this period, we also launched the 2DXL Super Loader, a product that maximises, value, versatility and performance.

The coming months will be exciting both in terms of business and in terms of launch of new and exciting products and we would want you to Expect More and Grow More.

All the best!

Vipin Sondhi
MD & CEO, JCB India Limited
