[Weiz, Austria/Mannheim, Germany – Jun. 13, 2018] We are pleased to announce that Pessl Instruments and John Deere are entering into sales cooperation in the EU 28+ countries. The cooperation will be offered to all John Deere distributors and partner companies, giving them access to the complete Pessl Instruments product portfolio and support by sales and service teams and the group of agricultural experts.
