John Deere Reman breaks ground on Strafford plant

Posted online
Officials with John Deere Reman-Springfield today are scheduled to break ground on the company's $14 million Strafford core-processing plant, according to a news release from the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce.

John Deere Reman plans to hire 55 employees for the 275,000-square-foot facility, which is scheduled to be completed by summer 2012 on a 130-acre tract adjacent to highways 125 and OO, according to Springfield Business Journal archives.

The facility, announced in April, will serve as a central core processing and storage location for John Deere dealers in the U.S. According to past SBJ coverage, the business has outgrown its current 120,000-square-foot receiving and processing facility on East Pythian Street.

The move also would bring a $14 million capital investment to the area during the next five years.

John Deere Reman-Springfield, located at 4500 Mustard Way within Partnership Industrial Center, is a subsidiary of Deere & Co. and was founded in 1998 through a joint venture with Springfield ReManufacturing Corp.

November has been a strong development month for Stafford. On Nov. 10, Oklahoma City-based Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores Inc. opened a truck stop in the town, the first in the Springfield area.

The roughly $8 million, 10,000-square-foot station located at Missouri Highway 125 and Interstate 44 employs 59.
