Scout Jamboree makes for huge JCB order

Scouting leaders l ived up to their motto of ‘being prepared’ by deploying 80 JCB machines to build and operate a massive campsite at a world jamboree for 40,000 partcipants.

The company won a mult-million dollar order from its Swedish dealer Söderberg & Haak Maskin AB for a feet of wheeled loading shovels, telescopic handlers, a backhoe loader, a wheeled excavator and 60 JCB WORKMAX utlity vehicles.

The machines were used initally for the constructon of a huge campsi te for the 22nd Wor ld Scout ing Jamboree in Rinkaby, Sweden.

The WORKMAX UTVs then played a huge role for the duration of the August event, carrying people and materials around the site, with some even being converted into fire tenders, complete with emergency medical equipment and 12 fre extnguishers on board. Now in the aftermath of the Jamboree, the whole feet of JCB machines is hard at work helping remove the infrastructure that was put in place for the event. Thomas Svensson, CEO, of Söderberg & Haak Maskin AB, said: “This was a very successful partnership and all the machines performed very well and helped towards the success of the World Scoutng Jamboree. The highly visible role of the JCB WORKMAX machines in partcular throughout the jamboree has helped put that product on the map in Sweden and really raised its profle here.” Apart from the logistcs staf, some senior scouts with driving licences were trained up to drive the UTVs as well, and used the machines to carry tmber and supplies.
