The Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje and JCB Group chairman, Lord Bamford inaugurated two new, world-class manufacturing facilities in Jaipur. Speaking about the Rs 500 crore investment in Jaipur, Lord Bamford said, “The inauguration is a significant milestone for JCB, which has been making in India for 35 years and has grown to become one of India’s most respected manufacturers. The new factories in Jaipur mean our contribution to the Indian economy will grow and I am grateful to the Rajasthan Government for their support in helping JCB make our investment ambitions a reality.”
Located on 115 acres of land, the site is home to JCB’s single largest manufacturing footprint in India. When operating at full capacity, it will employ around 1,000 people.
