JCB has won a new contract with a nationwide equipment rental firm, in a deal worth more than £27 million.
Eight-hundred machines have been bought by equipment hire company A-Plant.
The latest deal comes on the back of 550 machines ordered by A-Plant last year. It means the company has now bought 7,500 machines in a trading relationship with JCB stretching back 25 years.
