JCB receives compensation payment for product copying


JCB has agreed terms of settlement with an Asian manufacturer of backhoe loaders regarding allegations of product copying of JCBs iconic 3CX backhoe loader.  JCB has received an undisclosed settlement payment and the manufacturer has agreed to fundamentally redesign their backhoe loader.

This follows on from court actions that JCB also undertook against three Asian manufacturers at the Bauma show in Munich in April of this year in relation to product copying of both JCBs backhoe loader and telehandler machines.

Tim Burnhope, JCBs Group Managing Director for Product Development and Commercial Operations, said: This is the fourth incident this year of an Asian manufacturer copying one of our machines and taking unfair advantage of 57 years of product development.  JCB is determined to act promptly and decisively in relation to such activities and stamp them out.
