At John Deere, over 50,000 people have taken the leap. The leap to achievement. The leap to learning. The leap to high-performance teamwork. The leap to being valued as a contributor, an employee, a person. These are John Deere employees who, today, help develop, produce, market, and support quality machinery and services worldwide. They understand and embrace the core values of integrity, quality, commitment, and innovation. And they are recognized and rewarded for their contributions.
We manufacture, distribute, and finance a complete line of equipment used in agriculture, construction, forestry, and turf care. We also manufacture engines and other powertrain components for John Deere equipment and other manufacturers. And, we provide credit and other services to customers around the world.

Our founder, John Deere, understood the value of research and development. History has shown that his company continued to invest heavily in new products and services, through good times and bad. So it is today. Investments are divided among support for current product improvements, new product development, and the search for new product-oriented businesses.
Visit a John Deere factory and, most likely, you’ll find a product engineering department. It’s responsible for the design and development of their factory’s products. In addition, the Moline Technology Innovation Center, Moline, Illinois also handles research and development activities.
