#661- John Deere Tractor Turns 100!Nov 14, 2017
Our roots are in agriculture! Remember — Agriculture + Excel = Agracel. When we saw that John Deere will be celebrating 100 years of tractors in 2018, we just had to share.
While the company has been producing innovations in farm machinery for nearly two centuries, Deere entered the farm tractor business in March 1918 through the acquisition of the Waterloo Gasoline Engine Company. The pooled knowledge of John Deere and Waterloo engineers resulted in a tractor that established itself as a leader. Over the years, steady improvements and continuous growth and development led John Deere to its position of leadership in the design and manufacture of modern farm and industrial tractors.
Can you imagine farming today without our modern tractors? They literally drive themselves! If you get a chance, visit the John Deere Tractor & Engine Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, the John Deere Pavilion and John Deere World Headquarters in Moline, Ill., as well as at the John Deere Forum in Mannheim, Germany, where their iconic tractors will be on display.
Agriculture will always have a special place in our hearts. Congratulations to John Deere on this major milestone!
