Agribusiness Students Visit JCB

OTC faculty and students get ready to tour the state-of-the art JCB facility.
OTC faculty and students get ready to tour the state-of-the art JCB facility.

Recently the Agribusiness (AGB) program at Ogeechee Technical College was lucky enough to visit the JCB manufacturing facility in Pooler, Georgia.  Faculty and students were allowed to tour the facility to see the machines being built from start to finish.  AGB instructor Elliott Marsh said, “It was amazing to find out that the machines went from a piece of steel to a finished product in about 100 hours.”  The company’s North American headquarters is a 500,000 sq ft state-of-the art facility where  all major components are fabricated on site.  “This was a great opportunity for the students to see some of the hard work that goes into these machines.”  commented Marsh.  Students were also allowed to watch the "dancing diggers" rehearse for a special show they will be presenting in New York in December.
