MOLINE, Illinois (AP) Deere & Co., will invest $50 million in a new manufacturing plant in China to make construction equipment.

Deere said the new plant in Tianjin will produce four-wheel-drive loaders and excavators. It will be the company’s sixth manufacturing plant in China, and it will be near an existing John Deere factory that makes tractor components.
