John Deere and Grede partnership leads to more company recognition

Posted by Green Fun Store on 5/11/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
Classic John Deere is one of the most established manufacturers of lawn care and farming equipment in the world, and its strategy of creating beneficial partnerships is paying off. By merging ideas and solidifying mutual partnerships, the successful company is expanding exponentially. Not only this, but other companies are becoming known because of these tactics, spawning a win-win situation. Thanks to this type of cohesiveness, Grede Holdings LLC has won the "Best in Class" award from the American Foundry Society (AFS) because of its gear cover for John Deere tractor engines.

"We are very pleased to have been recognized by the AFS fo this one-of-a-kind timing gear cover," Grede Holdings CEO, Doug Grimm, told the International Solid Waste Association. "This award results from close teamwork between ourselves and John Deere, which represents what can be achieved when partners collaborate."

This timing gear cover was selected for the award because it reduces the day-to-day cost of running a tractor by decreasing the effects of the tractor's excessive weight and eliminates bolt-on components. Both companies are very pleased with the results, and farm life will surely benefit from these improvements.
