John Deere Recognized With Second Consecutive Dealer’s Choice Award



​High marks for the quality of its field managers and robust dealer services propelled John Deere to a Dealer’s Choice Award based on dealer responses in the 2016 Dealer-Manufacturer Relations Survey Report for the second consecutive year.

The award, presented by the Equipment Dealers Association (EDA) in the Full-Line manufacturer classification, is based on the top ratings Deere received for its overall operations and dealer support.

“This is great news and we’re extremely proud to be ranked so highly by EDA dealers,” says Bob Timmons, Director, Sales, John Deere Ag and Turf Division. “John Deere dealers do an exceptional job in providing quality products and services to customers and are a major factor in our overall success today.”

Timmons said the survey demonstrates John Deere’s commitment to support its dealer network and help promote their success.

“Everyone knows the John Deere name and it’s obvious their dealers recognize the excellent product quality, customer support and marketing services that are behind the brand,” said EDA president and CEO Rick Lawhun. “Receiving the Dealer’s Choice Award for the second year in a row shows that John Deere is dedicated to their dealers. Congratulations to everyone at Deere for achieving this recognition!”

Dealer comments in the survey validate Deere’s focus on providing unsurpassed dealer support and the company’s core values of integrity, quality, commitment, and innovation. One dealer wrote: “There is no company that compares in terms of product, marketing, support, quality and history.” Another stated:  “Our rep is great to work with and handles all issues in a timely manner.”
