JCB GENERATOR BUSINESS POWERS AHEAD WITH HUGE RENTAL DEAL

Monday, March 27, 2017

Generator manufacturer JCB Power Products has won its biggest export order of the year with a multi-million pound deal in the Middle East.

Dubai-based Rental Solutions & Services (RSS) has bought more than 300 JCB generators in a deal worth more than $11 million. The order is the biggest yet for JCB’s newly-launched range of RS generators specifically designed and manufactured in the UK for the global rental sector.

The first five units have already been pressed into service in Oman supported by JCB dealer Muscat Overseas Group. They are being used by a global oil and gas company which needed urgent standby power to support their operations.

RSS Operations Director Garry McMahon said: “We have a choice of generator suppliers in the Middle East, but we chose JCB Power Products as its range is the best rental selection we have seen. The brand presence of JCB in our region also ensures that our customers know we are working with quality equipment and providing the best possible back-up.”

JCB Power Products MD Jonathan Garnham said: “We are delighted to have won our biggest export order of 2017 from one of the Middle East’s biggest providers of standby power. JCB Power Products launched its RS rental range just a year ago and it is proving extremely successful in a very competitive global market where JCB provides unrivalled service and support.”

RSS offers rental generators across the Middle East, providing power for construction sites, large infrastructure developments, and petrochemical facilities. The company was established in 2007 as a global provider of rental power, temporary cooling and mobile water solutions.

The British-built generators will span from the smaller 60kVA outputs to the maximum 500kVA – enough to power 15,000 homes.  They all feature JCB’s market-leading LiveLink for Power telematics system, allowing customers to actively manage fleet utilisation, service scheduling and remotely diagnose faults and installation issues.

The generators will be used across the Middle East including Oman, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar. They will be will be supported by JCB’s extensive network of dealers in the Middle East.

JCB Power Products employs more than 200 people and has its headquarters in Stafford, UK as well as a production facility in Newtown, Wales and Delhi, India.
