San Antonio (Bexar County)JCB, a leading manufacturer of construction, agricultural and industrial equipment, will break ground on a $30 billion manufacturing facility early next year.

The Staffordshire, England-based company announced that they will construct a 720,000 square-foot facility to manufacture construction equipment on a 400-acre site in south San Antonio. The development will be a fully integrated manufacturing facility from fabrication to paint and final assembly.

“The growth we’ve experienced in the past few years in North America has been extensive and demand for our products continues to grow,” said JCB North America President and CEO Richard Fox-Marrs. “The decision to expand our manufacturing footprint will bring us even closer to our customers and will allow us to further capitalize on market opportunities in North America.”

San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg said he was happy to have the the “world’s largest, privately-owned construction, agricultural and industrial equipment manufacturer” join the community.

“Committed to reinvigorating American-made products, JCB is strengthening and expanding its North American manufacturing network with its new facility,” he said. “We are thrilled that JCB is bringing 1,500 new, quality jobs to San Antonio.”

“JCB is the latest win for Bexar County’s advanced manufacturing industry,” said Bexar County Judge Peter Sakai. “With Toyota, Navistar and now JCB, we can’t overstate the impact of these manufacturing operations that create significant multiplier effects beyond the initial job and capital investments. That’s why we invest so heavily to grow and sustain advanced manufacturing in our region.”
