Large equipment manufacturers' needs from their suppliers are constantly evolving in response to geopolitical, economical, commercial, and technological factors. What has historically been called best-in-class eventually becomes a mere baseline expectation. Suppliers must constantly be looking for ways to differentiate themselves – to provide a unique value to their customers – in order to stay relevant. So how do you accomplish that?
Join the Quad Cities Manufacturing Innovation Hub for this special event at Deere & Company World Headquarters on Aug. 9 where James Merten, Manager, Achieving Excellence from John Deere, will walk through the current expectations of large (original) equipment manufacturers like Deere, discuss how we see that evolving over the next several years, and explore resources available to you through the Quad Cities Chamber to help position yourself as a preferred supplier to these large customers.
Come early for refreshments. Stay afterwards to tour the John Deere equipment display floor!
