John Deere Tractor Factory Reaches Manufacturing Milestone
Recently, a new cab-model John Deere 4720 compact utility tractor rolled off the assembly line at the state-of-the-art John Deere tractor facility in Augusta, Ga. It seems only appropriate that this particular tractor would stand as the 500,000th compact utility tractor built over the lifetime of this important factory.
“Since the first John Deere 855 Tractor was built in 1991, John Deere-Augusta has been the linchpin-facility for the production of our high-quality compact utility tractors,” says John Jenkins, president, John Deere Worldwide Commercial and Consumer Equipment. “Over the past 15 years the products in the under 60-horsepower category have evolved tremendously. But our goal today remains as singular as when that first John Deere 855 came off the line in 1991: To provide our customers with products that deliver the quality and value they’ve come to expect from John Deere.”
“Speaking on behalf of the Augusta employees, we want to thank the thousands and thousands of customers who have put their trust and faith in the tractors we produce,” says Richard Czarnecki, Augusta factory manager. “This incredible milestone is an indication of their commitment to John Deere, and we want them to know we are equally committed to meeting their needs now and well into the future.”
