John Deere ends irrigation sales

9.16am 1st December 2011 - Corporate

John Deere has announced that the company is withdrawing from the turf irrigation business, which has been developed over the past six years in partnership with US manufacturer Signature Control Systems, Inc (SCS).

SCS will sell existing and new irrigation products through its own distribution network, which may include selected John Deere dealers worldwide.

Under the terms of the agreement, irrigation products will no longer be a part of the John Deere range, but the company will continue to support all customers who have installed its irrigation systems and parts. This strategic realignment will enable both John Deere and SCS to focus on their core equipment competencies in the worldwide golf and turf markets.

“John Deere’s existing irrigation customers will continue to receive our support,” said Gregg Breningmeyer, John Deere’s global golf segment manager. “In addition, our European Parts Distribution Center in Bruchsal, Germany, will continue to stock and provide replacement parts across the region for the foreseeable future.”
