This famous American brand has a rich history that begins in the first half of the last century, when in 1837 a young blacksmith John Deere from Vermont, whose parents came from England to America, forged in Grand Detour, Illinois its first steel plow. Even his plow already offered excellent quality, which has ever since been a trademark of John Deer products. John Deere also manufactures construction machinery, municipal machines, and other machinery for various industries. Reliable and proven John Deere engines are used in many mobile and stationary machines in a wide range of industries. It is the company's own engines, specially designed for agricultural machinery, long life of products and their components, robust construction which takes into account the enormous and sustained strain put on agricultural machinery, and high emphasis on R&D which allow John Deere to keep its motto: "Reliability is our Strength"
