Deere & Company Expands Springfield, Missouri, Manufacturing Campus
The remanufacturing division of Deere & Company, John Deere Reman, will be adding drivetrain and hydraulic remanufacturing operations to their existing facilities. The company has approximately 400 employees in Springfield.
“John Deere Reman is committed to helping our customers become more profitable and sustainable across the full lifecycle of our products,” said Jena Holtberg-Benge, manager, John Deere Reman Business. “By consolidating operations and creating a center of excellence in Springfield, the company is well positioned for future growth.”
According to company officials, remanufacturing offers customers a unique opportunity to meet the service needs of their equipment at a lower price point, with quality that’s equivalent to new parts. The remanufacturing of components also has significant environmental benefits through the reuse and recycling of material.
To help meet specific needs for this expansion John Deere Reman used state incentives such as Missouri Works and Missouri One Start.
The company manufactures engines, fuel, and electronics components for agriculture and construction customers around the world. John Deere Reman began in Springfield in 1998 as a joint venture with Springfield Remanufacturing Corp. and became wholly owned by Deere in 2009.
“John Deere Reman in Springfield is a major employer in the area, and we look forward to its continued success,” Governor Mike Parson said. “We appreciate John Deere’s continued investment in our state and commitment to providing more jobs and opportunities for Missourians.”
Springfield’s self-named designation as the nation’s remanufacturing hub has allowed companies like John Deere Reman to create and access a workforce with the skills needed to succeed in the industry. Further advancements like Ozark Technical Community College’s Center of Advanced Manufacturing are continuing to invest in the future of this industry among others.
