Deere Opens New Intelligent Solutions Group Facility

Deere recently opened its new Intelligent Solutions Group (ISG) facility in Urbandale, Ia. The 134,000 sq. ft. facility is devoted to problem solving with technology, collaboration, testing and development for John Deere precision products and services.

“By locating our development teams in the heartland, we are ideally positioned to be close to the farming challenges John Deere is actively working to solve on behalf of our customers,” said John Stone, senior vice president, John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group. “Our new ISG facility in Urbandale further emphasizes the role John Deere has as a technology leader with an equal commitment to agriculture and technology, supported by our tech-first presence in the Midwest.”

Outside the facility, soybeans, corn, cotton, oats and sunflowers that were planted earlier in the year can be found on what ISG calls the Front 40 Farm. “The Front 40 Farm gives employees who may not have grown up on a farm, a glimpse into the lifecycle of crops and the ability to see the finished product of what our customers produce. It’s an everyday reminder of why their work matters and the customers it impacts,” Stone said. “John Deere has a legacy of bringing meaningful innovation to the market and our latest expansion reflects our continued commitment. Being easily connected to our customers allows us to have a deep understanding of what is really needed to make the difficult job of farming easier and more precise. That knowledge is directly incorporated into every product we create.”

By opening the ISG facility, Stone said that John Deere expects to generate interest among potential employees in the Midwest and the “Silicon Prairie.”
