John Deere’s top-producing facility is in Columbia County

The Augusta Chronicle recently shared some wonderful news regarding one of our existing industries: John Deere’s top-producing facility is right here in Columbia County, Georgia! Damon Cline with the Augusta Chronicle wrote, “the local tractor plant has gone full supernova.”

The news broke as a series of photographs and an exclusive interview with The Augusta Chronicle. The John Deere facility in Grovetown, Georgia recently became the company’s highest-volume producing facility. John Deere has been a part of Columbia County for over 25 years and is the county’s largest private employer. The company rolled out its millionth tractor in 2015 and have been making strides since. Their operation has grown tremendously over the years and we are so glad they found success here in Columbia County, Georgia.
