John Deere recently marked a manufacturing milestone with the completion of the 5-millionth unit of riding lawn equipment built at the Power Products factory in Greeneville, Tenn.
Originally founded as a small, satellite factory, Power Products is now the highest volume facility for John Deere and is responsible for manufacturing many of the iconic green lawn mowers sold by the brand.
“The production of the 5-millionth machine is a significant milestone for the Power Products team, John Deere and our loyal customers,” said Jeff Hollett, factory manager.
The Power Products facility currently manufactures the John Deere 100-Series models, some of which are equipped with the Easy Change 30-Second Oil Change System, the S240 Lawn Tractor, and the Z300 Series ZTrak and Z500 Series ZTrak zero turn mowers.
The facility was established in 1988 and celebrated its 30th anniversary in July.
