Deere & Company announced plans to establish a European Technology & Innovation Center (ETIC) in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Deere plans to have the center operational in the spring of 2010.

The facility will accommodate up to 200 engineers to further enhance Deere's advanced engineering capabilities in Europe with a focus on developing and applying technological advances to serve customers in the region.

In addition, the new center will provide engineering support for Deere's work in intelligent mobile equipment technologies and agricultural management solutions.

Deere said Kaiserslautern provides an excellent environment with such activities as the specialized research operations at the University of Kaiserslautern, providing John Deere opportunities to recruit talented employees. Deere said the ETIC location also is beneficial because it is located between the product engineering centers at John Deere factories in Mannheim and Zweibruecken.
