John Deere has announced that it has purchased Mazzotti, a privately owned sprayer manufacturer based at Ravenna, Italy.
“Mazzotti is known for its innovation as well as its unique knowledge, designs and expertise in the sprayer industry,” Deere & Company president, agricultural solutions and chief information officer John May said. “The acquisition of Mazzotti provides John Deere with an opportunity to serve more customers in European markets.”
Mazzotti, a 30-year-old family-owned business, will maintain its name, trademark and commercial agreements, and will continue serving customers with high-quality products and services. As a result of today’s announcement, Mr May said Mazzotti will have the full support and commitment of John Deere to enhance its already successful sprayer business.
The acquisition doesn’t affect existing manufacturing and distribution arrangements either for Mazzotti or for John Deere self-propelled sprayers produced by the Deere Horst factory in The Netherlands. And there are currently no plans for Mazzotti sprayers to be sold in the UK and Ireland.
