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
T/CCI 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 T/CCI to supply products like air conditioning compressors for their signature John Deere Gator, directly to the company instead of working through third party suppliers.
As a Tier 2 supplier, T/CCI worked with the John Deere team to develop the air conditioning system for their 2018 Gator release. T/CCI worked from concept to production on the best design to support the application. The success of this project served as a catalyst to the raised supplier designation.
“Our partnership with John Deere has been extremely successful and continues to grow as T/CCI’s supplier profile is raised,” says T/CCI President Richard Demirjian. “We’re proud to be a trusted partner and continue to build a relationship that not only allows us to directly supply compressors, but work with the John Deere team on development of future products that are compatible with our industry leading systems.”
“Being granted Tier 1 supplier status opens a door for future growth as we expand this family of products to manufacture the QPV140 and additional displacements. It also creates an increased opportunity for our CNC Machining division.”
In addition to John Deere, T/CCI 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.
