JCB, or "J. C. Bamford (Excavators) Ltd." as it is more properly known, is a family business named after its founder J. C. Bamford, producing distinctive yellow-and-black engineering vehicles, diggers ("Backhoes") and excavators.

In the UK, the word "JCB" is sometimes used colloquially as a genericised trademark for any such type of engineering vehicle, now appearing in the Oxford English Dictionary, although it is still treated as a trademark. JCB now make over 220 types of machines for construction, industry, and agriculture
