Classic John Deere
is capitalizing on the concept of globalism, expanding its operations overseas at an astronomical rate. These maneuvers not only benefit the manufacturer and its stocks but also improve conditions in impoverished regions that desperately need top-notch equipment to grow and harvest their crops. By making a presence in these countries, John Deere is creating more public awareness for proper growing techniques, ensuring a future for farm life
in foreign nations. Earlier in the year, the manufacturer has announced its intentions to open several new facilities in India. Now, John Deere is implementing an expansion to China.
According to The Associated Press, Deere & Co. is planning to invest $80 million in a new plant that will be located in northeastern China to meet the region's increasing demand. This factory will be located in Harbin, which is within the Heilongjiang Province, and tractors won't be the only items on the assembly line. Other products will include sprayers, planters and harvesting equipment.
This new plant will go down as John Deere's seventh manufacturing complex in China. The facility is expected to begin producing equipment by the fall of 2012.
