The Deere & Company board approved an investment plan to establish a manufacturing and parts center in Russia. The project will be located near Moscow, in close proximity to the Domodedovo International Airport.
The new site will have the capability to manufacture a broad range of John Deere products, including tractors and harvesting equipment, as well as construction and forestry products. At the same time, Deere will consolidate several depots into one site to improve parts and after-sales service to customers.
Deere opened a forestry sales branch in Saint Petersburg in 2002; an agricultural sales branch in Moscow in 2003; a manufacturing facility for seeding equipment in Orenburg in 2005; and added construction equipment sales to the Moscow branch operations in 2009. The company also has announced its intention to develop an operations and training center in Kaluga.
