JCB, one of the world's top three manufacturers of construction and agricultural equipment, joins the Loenbro Motorsports team this weekend as its newest partner as driver Steve Arpin races for his second podium of the Red Bull Global Rallycross season.
Loenbro is a single-source solution for companies that need to have construction, electrical, industrial, mechanical, and inspection work performed. It has operations in 20 states and experience in several industry sectors, including energy and manufacturing.
The GRC racing series rolls into Louisville, Ky., for its second race of the year. Arpin, who doubles as general manager of Loenbro Motorsports, welcomed JCB to his Supercar team.
“The JCB and Loenbro partnership makes so much sense,” Arpin said. “Both are family-owned companies and industry leaders. They work hard to serve their customers, and many of those customers are racing fans.”
For the Louisville race, Arpin’s Supercar will feature JCB livery, and a JCB 509-23TC Loadall telescopic handler will be on prominent display at the track throughout the weekend.
Thom Peebles, vice president of marketing for JCB in North America, explained the new partnership reflects more than common business practices.
“JCB and Loenbro share strong associations with motorsports and a passion for innovation and engineering, but the true character of both companies is evident in the quality of our people and our commitment to our communities,” Peebles said. “It is exciting to collaborate with the Loenbro team, to align our shared enthusiasm for business, community and racing success."
Paul Leach, owner of Loenbro Motorsports and president of Loenbro, said: “We look forward to growing our relationship with JCB. We have many common interests in industry, in the community, with our clients and in racing. We’re eager to put more JCB machines to work for our customers.”
