John Deere will bring its G Series motor graders to Europe via its Wirtgen Group network in Germany and France. Deere bought Wirtgen in 2017.
“We are excited to leverage our relationship with the Wirtgen Group to introduce John Deere construction equipment to a new market, further expanding our global footprint,” said David Thorne, Deere senior vice president, sales & marketing, said in a published statement. “Wirtgen’s stellar reputation for supporting customers, and large distribution network, allows us to serve these new markets well offering them powerful motor grader solutions in two priority countries.”
Because motor graders are heavily used in road building applications, the synergies between the Deere models and the Wirtgen portfolio, as well as the thriving French and German markets were determining factors in bringing the machines to the continent, Deere said.
The European rollout focuses on the six-wheel drive 622GP and 672GP graders
