Deere & Company will close its manufacturing facility in Welland, Ontario, Canada, and transfer production to company operations in Wisconsin and Mexico. The Welland factory manufactures utility vehicles and attachments for the commercial and consumer equipment and agricultural equipment businesses. Deere said that by consolidating manufacturing capacity the move supports ongoing company-wide efforts aimed at improved efficiency and profitability.

Production of Gator utility vehicles made at Welland will move to Horicon, WI, U.S., where other models of the product as well as riding lawn equipment are built. Production of cutting and loading attachments will be transferred to Deere installations in Monterrey and Saltillo, Mexico. The Welland plant is scheduled to close by the end of 2009.

Approximately 800 employees will be affected by the closure.
