The big step came in 1983, when John Deere was impressed by their design and reliability and turned to HCM to deliver their next-generation excavators.
In 1988, a 50/50 joint venture relationship was established between these two companies and Deere- Hitachi Construction Machinery Corporation was formed. For marketing support for each other, they established a few plants.
In 2002, Hitachi and Deere combined their training, information systems, marketing and product support operations.
