Deere to Boost Hydraulic Cylinder Production

June 5, 2012

Deere & Company will expand it production capacity for hydraulic cylinders, investing $47 million to expand its Moline, Ill., operations.



“John Deere’s continued global growth requires the company to invest in our manufacturing operations,” said Mark Von Pentz, president of Deere's Worldwide Agriculture & Turf Division. “Market demand has remained strong for John Deere products and this initiative improves our capability to meet that market demand by improving our manufacturing of hydraulic cylinders, which are a key component in heavy equipment.”



Deere said the investment will result in significant upgrades in machining tools at the cylinder operations but will not require an addition to the physical building. No jobs will be added as a direct result of the investment.
