John Deere announced renewed plans to build a marketing and sales center in northwest Olathe, Kan., in the Corporate Ridge Office Park, near K 10 and Ridgeview Road. This 126,150 square-foot facility will house up to 500 marketing professionals who will provide support and service to John Deere sales branches and agriculture and turf dealerships in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.


"The decision to resume construction reaffirms our commitment to the ag and turf equipment business and to the local area," said John Lagemann, vice president of agriculture and turf equipment, sales and marketing.
