John Deere Power Systems (JDPS), Waterloo, Iowa, and Liebherr, Ehingen, Germany, announced at Bauma that Liebherr service locations will be able to service John Deere-powered OEM equipment. Liebherr service locations are an addition to the existing John Deere agricultural dealer and John Deere engine distributor networks and service points. This agreement could expand the John Deere engine service network by more than 150 locations throughout Europe.
The deal between the two companies utilizes Liebherr dealer and branch locations in Europe to provide John Deere customers an extensive engine service network with more than 4,000 locations. Liebherr dealers will provide full service for John Deere engines in Liebherr products and in John Deere-powered OEM equipment for the industrial and construction markets.
“Liebherr is one of the world's leading manufacturers of construction machinery, and we're very pleased to enter into this expanded service relationship,” said John Piasecki, director of worldwide marketing, sales, and customer support for JDPS.
JDPS will integrate the European Liebherr dealers over a 12-month period.
The Liebherr dealerships will be staffed by technicians fully trained and certified to do warranty work on John Deere-powered OEM equipment. These new locations will provide all the benefits offered by current John Deere service locations.
John Deere currently provides engines for Liebherr compact loaders, crawler loaders and telehandlers sold in Europe, and Liebherr provides compact loaders, crawler dozers and crawler loaders to complement John Deere construction equipment in the United States and Canada.
