JCB has landed its biggest-ever UK order for electric equipment, with EMR, a global leader in sustainable materials, buying 50 electric Teletruk models, in a deal worth more than GBP3 million (USD3.75 million).

EMR recycles over eight million T of metals and plastics each year and purchased the fleet of JCB electric Teletruk models for handling non-ferrous metals and end-of-life vehicles, across its nationwide UK sites.

Supplied by dealer Gunn JCB, they replace an existing fleet of competitive diesel models.

EMR’s regional commercial manager, Giles Mogg, says: “The switch to JCB electric Teletruks is one of a number of significant steps we have taken to reduce the carbon intensity of our business, on our journey to be carbon net-zero by 2040. 

“They are fantastic, productive machines that will make a positive difference to our fleet.”

The JCB 30-19E and 35-22E electric Teletruks are part of a new generation of products from the JCB E-TECH range of equipment which deliver zero emissions at point of use without compromising performance. The forward reach electric forklifts feature a unique telescopic boom and are capable of a full 8-hour shift on a single charge. Their small turning circle and single side-loading capability make them more productive in materials handling work, inside and outdoors.

EMR is a global leader in sustainable materials with physical operations in the USA, UK, Germany and the Netherlands. Its purpose is to create a future where the materials we use do not need to be extracted from the planet.

EMR has committed to becoming a fully net-zero business by 2040 and has aligned its climate commitments with science to play its part in the battle against climate change.
