JCB looking better, chairman Sir Anthony Bamford says


Staffordshire firm JCB has said it will invest £20m in its UK factories over the coming year.

JCB chairman Sir Anthony Bamford said the firm had come out of the "worst recession" he had known in 47 years with the business.

He said things were "looking better" as the firm, based in Rocester, marked its 65th anniversary.

A spokesman for the company said the money would be spread among its 11 UK plants and would be used to buy more equipment and recruit 50 staff.
