MOLINE, Ill. (AP) Deere & Co. has announced it will invest about $100 million to modernize the John Deere Foundry in Waterloo, Iowa.

According to Deere, the modernization work will take place over the next 4 to 5 years. The project will allow the heavy equipment maker to improve manufacturing capacity and flexibility.
