DEERE TO MOVE ITS TRACTOR CAB PRODUCTION FROM WATERLOO, IA, TO MEXICO
by Donnell Eller, Des Moines Register

Farm and construction equipment manufacturing giant Deere & Co. said Thursday it's moving tractor cab production from its Waterloo plant to Mexico, given a tight labor market and the need to make way for new products at the northeast Iowa plant, its largest.

The company said it plans to transfer the operations to its components plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, in 2024.

"The decision to move cab production ensures the company can balance workforce needs within the tight labor market, while also ensuring Waterloo can open up floor space to manufacture new products," the company said in a statement.

Deere declined Thursday to say what kind of new products might be produced at the Waterloo plant.

The number of employees affected will depend on production volumes and employee attrition over the next two years, as well as new product program needs, the statement said.
