Control systems for John Deere’s full-tree equipment to be developed in Finland

The development of automation and control systems for John Deere’s feller bunchers, tracked harvesters and skidders is now being engineered in Finland. This will create additional new jobs at John Deere Forestry Oy in Tampere.

The TimberMatic system will be leveraged for the future development of control systems for John Deere’s line of full-tree forestry equipment. The first product development projects will impact tracked harvesters and tracked feller bunchers.

John Deere Forestry Oy’s product development department has over 40 years of experience in automation and advanced control system development. Centralizing the engineering of forest machine control systems for all of John Deere’s forestry products will deliver significant synergies between the products lines. John Deere’s solid development processes, group-wide collaboration, and team expertise will enhance the future development of automation and control systems for feller bunchers, tracked harvesters and skidders.

Finnish expertise in developing advanced control systems for forest machines is strong. The automation and electronic systems in the new G-Series forest machines have been well received by John Deere customers globally.
John Deere Forestry Oy has manufactured forest machines in Joensuu, Finland, since 1972. The company employs about 700 people in Finland. Forest machine product development is located in Tampere, and over 90% of John Deere’s wheeled harvesters and forwarders are exported.
