Read the opening case on page 447: JCB in India

Synopsis: The case describes the entry of JCB into China. A British manufacturer of construction equipment, JCB initially entered India in 1979 via a joint venture with Escorts, an Indian engineering conglomerate, with Escorts holding a 60 percent stake in the joint venture. As years went by, and Indian regulations changed to give foreign companies more advantages to doing business in the country, JCB eventually bought out Escorts, transforming the joint venture into a wholly owned subsidiary.

Please address the following questions:

1. What attracted JCB to India back in 1979? What were the benefits of making a significant investment in the country?

2. Which entry mode did JCB use to enter India? What advantages did this entry mode have over other ways to expand into the market?

3. In your opinion, has JCB business strategy and approach to India paid off? Was the company’s decision to make a significant commitment to the market a good one?
