John Deere Power Systems and Liebherr announced at the Bauma Construction Trade Fair recently that Liebherr service locations will begin servicing John Deere-powered OEM equipment. Liebherr service locations are an addition to the existing Deere agricultural dealer and Deere engine distributor networks and service points. The 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 one of the most extensive engine service networks in the world, with more than 4,000 locations overall. Liebherr dealers will provide full service for John Deere engines in Liebherr products and in Deere-powered OEM equipment for the industrial and construction markets.
JDPS will integrate the European Liebherr dealers over a 12-month period.
“This [partnership] enables us to provide even better support to our U.S. customers exporting equipment to this part of the world, as well as to our European OEM construction equipment customers,” said Jacques Febvre, JDPS manager of engine sales, marketing and customer support for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “We will look at the opportunities to expand this agreement to other global markets in the future.”
Technicians at the Liebherr dealerships will be fully trained and certified to do warranty work on Deere-powered OEM equipment.
John Deere currently provides engines for Liebherr compact 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.
