JCB hosted a ceremony on Nov. 11, 2015, to celebrate employees at the North American facility who are military veterans. The ceremony recognized 75 employees from five military branches whose cumulative service totals more than 500 years.

“Veterans Day is a special day as our country celebrates those who have served and the sacrifices they and their families have made to ensure the freedoms we enjoy every day,” said Thom Peebles, vice president of marketing of JCB North America. “As a veteran, I am humbled by the opportunity I had serving our great country. And, as a JCB employee, I am proud to be a part of an organization that not only acknowledges the service of our veterans, but chooses to celebrate their contributions with a ceremony like the one held today.”

In addition to celebrating employees who have served in the military, the ceremony also honored JCB’s dedication to providing machinery to the U.S. military and allied nations that protects soldiers while on duty, such as the HMEE (high mobility engineer excavator). The ceremony also recognized the addition of the global government and defense division to the Savannah facility earlier this year.

Peebles said, “As home to the world’s toughest backhoe with the JCB HMEE and the headquarters for JCB’s global government and defense division, we have the truly unique privilege of designing, engineering and building machines that protect our servicemen and women around the globe.”

During the ceremony, employees were called to the stage and received a token of appreciation from the company acknowledging their personal years of service.
