Beginning the first week of September, 120 Deere & Co. production employees at John Deere Harvester Works in East Moline, Illinois will be placed on indefinite layoff.
Executives with the company said Deere must adjust the number of production employees at each of its factories to match the demand for products.
Deere has previously noted that the company anticipates agricultural equipment sales to decrease during the 2016 fiscal year. The Moline factory presently employs approximately 1,050 production employees.
