The British Manufacturers Plant Construction Association or BMPCA Held their AGM 2018 meeting at the JCB Global Headquarters in Rocester Staffordshire. There was a good attendance from association members. When the meting was concluded the members were provided with a superb buffet lunch and the were escorted on a tour of the Visitors Centre followed by a works tour. JCB are a British success story.
I was not aware that JCB hold the world land speed record for a diesel powered vehicle 350.092 mph or 563.418 kph.
