We know that JCB does the work of digging the soil. And Matti is also admitted in big vehicles. But you will not know the history of JCB, who made JCB. What is the full form of JCB machine ? When was JCB machine made? To know the answer to all these questions, read this article till the last.


JCB is known by many names, it is also called soil digging machine, JCB is also called JCP by most of the people. If we talk about the full form of JCB, then its full name is “Joseph Cyril Bamford” . And it is also called bulldozer.

Now you will be surprised to know one thing that JCB is not the name of any vehicle but it is the name of a company. This is exactly the same as TVS is written in any TVS vehicle, although its model is also written in these vehicles like TVS Apache.

“TVS” written in TVS Apache is the name of a company and not of that particular bike. Just like that JCB is also the name of a company but everyone knows it only as the name of that vehicle. Actually, the real name of JCB vehicle is Backhoe Loader, which very few people know about.

One question I would like to ask you that have you noticed that Bike is written on any bike, Car is written on Car? No. Rather, the name of that company is written on those vehicles. In the same way, the name of the company is written JCB on this yellow colored vehicle and people started to understand that it is the name of the vehicle itself.

Now it comes to the question that why was it named Joseph Cyril Bamford ?

Why was the name JCB named?

This wrought iron machine is called JCB because the name of the person who made this machine was Joseph Cyril Bamford . So the short name has been removed from their name and named JCB.

J is taken from Joseph! C is taken from Cyril! And B is taken from Bamford! That’s why it is called JCB. And if you have seen JCB, then you will know that the full name is not written on the JCB machine also, JCB is written on it too.

When was JCB invented?

JCB was first formed in 1945. It was first built on a tractor. At first, only the front part of the JCB was used to lift the soil on the tractor. After that JCB was made, 6 people worked to make JCB, so there were 6 people in this team.

When JCB was created, JCB did not get much name. And when 2009 came, this company had come to India. So the Government of India understood it in 2009, saw its benefits and started working. After that JCB’s demand started all over the world and very soon JCB’s company started running all over the world.

The company that made JCB was from the British country, so now the company of JCB is all over the world and from 10000 to 11000 people work in its company. 

Types of JCB

There is a different JCB for different work. Most of the JCB does the work of digging the soil. And for this reason, JCB with the highest clay is found. If any house or shop has to be demolished, then a separate JCB is called for it.
