The firm received the distinction for agricultural machinery in the awards that distinguish companies and agricultural organizations for innovation and quality.
John Deere, a company that connects machines, people, technology and intelligence with each of the solutions it offers, received last night the La Nación-Banco Galicia Award for Agricultural Excellence in the category “Best Manufacturer of Agricultural Machinery”, a distinction that crowns 60 years of uninterrupted manufacturing and investments in the country.
John Deere invests $ 4 million a day globally in Research and Development, resulting in increased productivity, lower costs, operational efficiency and better management for customers. In the current era of Big Data and the Internet of Things, the company has innovated in software and remote communication integrated into its teams, with data management in the cloud and telemetry and precision operations.
“Receiving this recognition is very satisfactory for John Deere, a company that has been producing uninterrupted production in Argentina for 60 years and always accompanying the Argentine countryside, convinced of its potential,” said Gastón Trajtenberg, president of John Deere Argentina.
“In recent years, and in this particular one, John Deere has notably reaffirmed its commitment to the national industry with new production lines, the expansion of the factory, the opening of a Spare Parts Distribution Center, a training center and a state-of-the-art laboratory. It is a pride and a pleasant responsibility to be valued for it. From John Deere we continue working day by day with the Argentine producer, with great expectations for the future of the field in our country, “added Trajtenberg.
John Deere began producing in Argentina in 1958 when it opened its engine factory in Granadero Baigorria. However, the strong history linking the company to the country dates back to 1894 when the first agricultural machines were marketed. Currently, John Deere has an engine, tractor and combine factory, a Parts Distribution Center, a Training Center and more than 820 direct employees. In addition, it works with a wide network of 26 dealers in more than 90 points of sale throughout the country.
In Argentina, the company’s long-term vision was expressed to its maximum potential during 2018, with corporate announcements and commercial launches aimed at offering complete and increasingly efficient solutions for the Argentine producer and contractor.
