Everyone's heard of JCB, but do you know how the company got its name? Well, if we tell you that it all started with one man, Joseph Cyril Bamford, you can probably work it out for yourself!
Yes, Mr JCB gave his company his own initials. He started everything off in 1945, right at the end of World War II, in a garage measuring 3.66 metres by 4.57 metres - probably about the same size as your bedroom
