Iowa NAMA at John Deere Plant

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, May 27, 2015 , 10:49 am

Iowa NAMA went behind the scenes at the John Deere Des Moines Works plant to see how Deere’s biggest machines, specifically the different types of cotton pickers, are brought to life in some of the most modern and efficient factories in the world.  All of the guests went on a riding tour to see the many buildings and watch the big machines come to life, from the cutting of the metal parts and frames, to painting the parts with the famous green that we see out in the fields. It was amazing to see the huge machines come to life – seeing the parts go on and the engine start up then drive off.  It was also interesting to learn the history of how John Deere started making these machines and other ones in the Des Moines Works plant.

Following that, attendees heard about the history of the area where the plant grounds are, which are where World War II era bombs were made for the war. They had 30 guests, including some from the Minnesota NAMA chapter, that joined in the fun.

Mid-America 5 14 15 Planning Meeting IMG_3213On May 14, more than a dozen Mid-America members from Indiana and Kentucky stepped up to the plate and engaged in productive dialogue about how to reinvigorate the chapter!  Programming was outlined into the beginning of 2016, with volunteers chosen to execute the planning for each.  In addition, leader positions were filled by those in attendance.  Plans were also made to offer more support to the student chapters.  Unfortunately, some members had already left before a photo was taken to commemorate the afternoon.
