Bamfords Factory

Some of you may know that part of the original Bamford factory in Uttoxeter
is still used by JCB's heavy products division to manufacture large earth
movers. I believe that this was the baler factory, the older area where
engines were made went a few years ago at the same time the offices were
made in to a medical centre.
Now JCB are looking to move to a new factory and the old site is going to
be developed to help fund the new factory. This makes a change from the
usual story these days when the factory is demolished because the company
has gone out of business or switched production to china.
