Company Summary:

John Deere is the brand name of Deere & Company, which is an American corporation that manufactures construction, agricultural, and forestry machinery, diesel engines, drivetrains used in heavy equipment, and lawn care equipment. The company has their headquarters located at Moline, Illinois. They provide several tractor series that include D series, E series, Specialty Tractors, Super Heavy Duty Tractors, and JDLink.

Deere & Company has a history that dates back in the mid-1800s when John Deere, born in Vermont, moved to Grand Detour, Illinois in 1836 to escape bankruptcy in Vermont. Deere opened a shop in Grand Detour, which enabled him to be the general repairman in the village, and also a manufacturer of gardening tools. The tools were just a start but what gave him the name was the self-scouring steel plow, which John Deere fashioned a Scottish steel saw blade into a plow. Before this creation, most farmers used iron or wooden plows where the soil stuck, making them clean it frequently. The creation solved this problem and greatly aided migration into the American Great Plains in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

People working at John Deere gets to connect with many highly talented employees. John Deere is a company that recognizes and embraces diversity and inclusion. Each employee has a role in producing the highest quality products and services and they get recognized and rewarded for their contributions.
