JCB, known for its yellow diggers, said that more than 25% of its Chinese suppliers remained shut, and that even those that had reopened were working at a reduced capacity and struggling to make shipments.

“It is therefore clear that the inbound supply of certain components from Chinese partners will be disrupted in the coming weeks as they seek to replenish their stocks,” JCB said yesterday.
