Liebherr-Deere Crawler Dozer Deal

January 2009 Vol. 64 No. 1

Liebherr Construction Equipment Co. and John Deere jointly announce the signing of a long-term sourcing agreement for Deere-branded 950- and 1050-size crawler dozers, and the discontinuation of the existing product supply arrangement for crawler loader machines between Liebherr-Werk Telfs GmBH and John Deere’s Construction & Forestry Division.

Under the original agreement signed in December 2000, Liebherr has supplied large crawler dozers and crawler loaders to John Deere for distribution in the U.S. and Canada. The companies have agreed that effective January 2010, John Deere will design and manufacture the 605, 655 and 755 crawler loader models in their Dubuque, IA factory and will continue to distribute its own line of crawler loader models into the U.S. and Canadian market. 800.503.3373, johndeere.com
