JCB Global

Building a strong foundation

We meet Graeme Macdonald, CEO of JCB, to find out the key to a partnership that has lasted over 70 years.

With 22 plants worldwide, equipment manufacturer JCB needs an agile financial partner – one it can rely on whatever the conditions in international construction markets.

Over the course of a relationship spanning more than 70 years, Barclays has helped JCB lay the foundations for expansion - managing payments globally, providing export funding, and delivering local banking services in Europe.

In an ever-evolving industry, our relationship has stretched over decades.
