JCB secured an agreement with Johnston Sweepers to supply engines to the manufacturer of street-cleaning equipment. The agreement is expected to be worth almost $4.8 million per year, as Johnston supplies its equipment to the public sector, contractors, the rental market and airports through a network of 200 global dealers.
JCB will begin producing JCB Ecomax engines for Johnston Sweepers’ equipment in December 2012. JCB will primarily supply Johnston Sweepers with JCB’s 4.4 liter 55kW (74 hp) Ecomax, which is ready for Tier 4 final without requiring SCR systems or diesel exhaust fluid.
