A new JCB dealership has been created in an effort to take advantage of growth opportunities in the Midlands.

Midlands JCB has purchased three depots to build the dealership from Gunn JCB in Smethwick, Stoke-on-Trent, and Hereford.

The Smethwick dept will become the new headquarters of Midlands JCB will all employees from the three depots transferring over to the new company. A recruitment drive in the local area is expected to follow to meet the increasing demands of the industry.

The new business will operate as the primary JCB construction dealer for the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire and will be under the ownership and management of former JCB employees David Hill as managing director and Alistair Reekie as sales director.

Hill said: “We are thrilled to begin operations as Midlands JCB and build on the great work of Gunn JCB, while focusing on new growth opportunities in this very important region. We look forward to working with new and existing customers to provide exceptional products and service, focusing on outstanding local support.”

Alistair Reekie added: “We want to assure our customers that this change will not affect the quality of service they receive from their local JCB dealer, who will continue to receive exceptional service from our team.”
