Deere Plans China Engine Plant

Deere & Co. said it will build a new plant in China in Tianjin, near other Deere operations. The $60 million facility will be a plant to build engines for its agricultural, construction and forestry equipment.

The new plant is due to start operation in late 2013.

“We believe the integration of John Deere engines into the equipment we manufacture provides Deere with a competitive advantage because our customers have a highly integrated machine and they experience improved performance for fuel economy, emissions and noise reduction,” said Jean Gilles, senior vice president of John Deere Power Systems.
