About John Deere Financial
We can trace the financing of John Deere equipment back at least 150 years. In fact, it is said that John Deere himself financed some of his first customers. Officially, Deere & Company began offering equipment financing to retail customers in the mid-1800s. And in 1958, Deere & Company established John Deere Credit Company, the predecessor of John Deere Financial, to offer John Deere retail financing.
John Deere Financial is one of the world’s largest providers of financial services to agricultural and construction customers, supporting John Deere around the world with more than 1.7 million accounts and a managed worldwide portfolio of $40 billion. John Deere Financial provides retail, wholesale and lease financing to help facilitate the sale of John Deere agricultural, construction, forestry, turf, and utility equipment.
Today, John Deere Financial has approximately 2,300 employees worldwide and offers retail finance programs in 45 countries.
Today, Deere & Company is one of the world's most admired businesses. But in 1837, John Deere, blacksmith and inventor, had little more than a blacksmith shop, a discarded steel saw, and an idea that would help farmers, changing the face of agriculture for all time.
