John Deere Reman – Springfield has finalized plans to build a 275,000-square-foot facility in Strafford, which is expected to create 55 new jobs and bring $14 million in capital investment to the area within the next five years.
The facility will serve as a central core processing and storage location for John Deere dealers in the U.S., according to a news release.
“This additional facility will enable the growth of John Deere’s remanufacturing business," Don Flatau, general manager of John Deere Reman, said in the release. "Remanufacturing is a proven process for recycling components into like-new parts for a highly desirable customer repair solution."
Plans call for the facility to be located within Strafford Industrial Business Park, a 130-acre tract adjacent to Highway 125 and Highway OO.
"This industrial park will help facilitate growth in Strafford," Strafford Mayor Barb Helvey said in the release. "We look forward to continued development and the presence of John Deere Reman in the community."
The site is within the the Strafford Enhanced Enterprise Zone, which provides incentives - tax credits and tax abatements - to companies that create jobs and invest money into the area.
John Deere Reman – Springfield is a subsidiary of Deere & Co. and was founded in 1998 through a joint venture with Springfield ReManufacturing Corp.
The facility is located at 4500 Mustard Way within Partnership Industrial Center.[[In-content Ad]]
