Construction Machinery Corporation

Deere-Hitachi Construction Machinery Corporation is a midsize excavator manufacturing facility located in Kernersville, NC. As a joint venture company formed in 1988 between John Deere and Hitachi, we manufacture two different brands of excavators - John Deere and Hitachi.

With our scope of business being primarily focused on the regions of the Americas (North, Central, and South America), our state-of-the-art facility brings together the latest in technological innovation and the proven talents of our skilled local workforce. The production process begins with the highest-quality materials, and employs advanced welding robotics, CNC machining centers, plasma plate-cutting machines and cranes capable of transporting as much as 25 tons.

Taking even greater strides to meet customer needs, we utilize lean manufacturing practices, including simple, effective kanban replenishment notification systems to guide material through the factory and accurately track inventory levels. This "pull" manufacturing system, coupled with our quality assurance inspection process, ensures a smooth, reliable product assembly - and enables us to produce made-to-order machines with a quick time to market.
