JCB's £2m investment for Wrexham factory

Construction equipment firm JCB is investing £2m in new equipment at a Wrexham factory.

JCB Transmissions has two plants in the town, one producing gear boxes, the other axles.

The company will install a new machine capable of producing 130 axles per day, which it says is more efficient than its existing unit.

Its director, Stuart Hughes, said: "This is a massive vote of confidence in the Wrexham site by the JCB Group."

He said the Germany-made automated unit would "help improve productivity and ensure we remain competitive in the world market".
