Top 100 Global Innovator



John Deere has been named a Thomson Reuters 2012 top 100 Global Innovator, joining companies such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nike and Sony.
The list is an initiative of the Intellectual Property Solutions business of Thomson Reuters, and represents a diverse range of industries.
“Meaningful innovation at John Deere is creating product and service solutions that solve real problems and create value for our customers and our company,” said Samuel R Allen, Deere & Company chairman and chief executive officer.
“Our company began 175 years ago with the innovation of a self-scouring steel plough by our founder John Deere,” Allen added. “We invest in innovation to help our customers continue to be highly productive. For example, we have grown our capabilities in the past six years from a single North American corporate R&D centre to five Global Technology Innovation Centres.
“John Deere benefits from the competitive strength of enterprise-wide innovation as a key component of fulfilling the company’s business strategy and sustaining profitable growth through differentiation.”
