SARAN, France — John Deere Electronics (JDE) is pleased to announce a new distribution and support agreement with Rational Motion GmbH, which is headquartered in Cologne, Germany.

Rational Motion will be the official distributor in Germany of JDE inverters for all on-highway and, depending on business environment, off-highway markets, including hybrid and pure electric applications. The new business arrangement means that customers will not only receive JDE inverters, but also integration services provided by Rational Motion.

"We're pleased to expand our distributor footprint in Europe with the addition of Rational Motion, which will improve our geographical coverage in the region," said Etienne Hussenot, Account Manager and Business Development Manager for Europe at JDE. "Rational Motion expertise in analysis of customer's needs and integration of complete systems will also benefit customers investing in electrification."

Rational Motion is a company whose more than 20 electrical, mechanical and software engineers work in unison to provide customers a complete system solution for their electric drivetrain; from conception to implementation. The flexibility of the PD400 single or dual modular design matched with Rational Motions’ motor line up expands their versatile electric drive train portfolio even more.

Working with distributors and integrators, like Rational Motion, offer customers robust solutions with a faster time to market to lead their journey in vehicle electrification.
