Quality, efficiency and service of product development of the QPV125 for 2018 John Deer Gator application was pivotal in raising the company’s supplier status.

TCCI Manufacturing, a world leader in compressor technology including reciprocating, swash plate, wobble plate, and variable compressor designs, has been named a Tier 1 Supplier by John Deere. The designation allows TCCI to supply products like air conditioning compressors for their signature John Deere Gator, directly to the company instead of working through third party suppliers.

In addition to John Deere, TCCI is a leading supplier of air conditioning compressors for companies including Caterpillar, Fiat, Scania Group, Navistar, Daimler Trucks, Kubota, Case IH, New Holland Agriculture and other global manufacturers of construction and agriculture equipment, heavy-duty trucks, buses, refrigeration and military vehicles.
