MOLINE, Ill. — Deere and Company will place 160 employees of the John Deere Des Moines Works on indefinite layoff later this month due to reduced market demand for the factory’s products.
Deere said the layoffs affect production workers with the least seniority and that employees were told of the plans in meetings April 8 at the factory. The layoffs are effective April 27.
The John Deere Des Moines Works manufactures tillage, planting, spraying and cotton harvesting equipment for agriculture.
