Delphi is applying its proven automotive expertise to the off-highway market on John Deere's newest line of agricultural equipment. The equipment will feature the latest climate control technology from Delphi's Thermal & Interior division. It is Delphi's first award of climate control business with John Deere in North America.

The harvesting equipment ranges from combines and windrowers to cotton pickers and sugar cane harvesters. Each will be equipped with a Delphi compact heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) module.

"There is an increasing demand for comfort and convenience in the agricultural equipment market. Not only does the equipment need to perform its function, the operator needs to feel comfortable while working in it," said Ron Pirtle, president, Delphi Thermal & Interior and vice president, Delphi Corp. "No matter what the elements, Delphi's climate control system is equipped with the latest climate control technology to ensure a comfortable environment."

The compact HVAC module uses high performance evaporators, high-efficiency heating cores, and improved temperature control and airflow management technology for enhanced air supply, control, and conditioning.

"We are confident this marks the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship. Delphi is proud to be featuring our most advanced climate control technology on John Deere equipment. Together, we are engineering solutions for tomorrow's commercial vehicle industry," said Pirtle.

Deere & Company recently awarded Delphi with "Partner" status - the company's highest award given to suppliers for all-around quality performance. The award is part of the company's "Achieving Excellence" program and was awarded to Delphi for excellence in supplying both electronic unit injectors (EUI) and wiring harnesses in Europe.

The award honored the EUI team in Stonehouse and Park Royal, both in the United Kingdom, for success in supplying electronic unit injectors for John Deere's 650 series diesel engines. Also honored was the Delphi Packard Electric for its high quality in supplying wiring assemblies for John Deere heavy-duty tractors and tractor cabins built in Europe.

The annual award was based on delivery performance, quality of product, cost management, technical ability and relationship with supplier. There are four award categories including "Conditional," "Approved," "Key" and "Partner."

"We achieved both a 100 percent delivery and 100 percent quality performance from John Deere," said Brad Maggart, global director, Delphi Commercial Vehicle Systems. "We are thrilled and honored that John Deere has recognized our commitment to quality and technology with its highest-level award. We look forward to continuing to build our strong relationship with Deere & Company."

My dad worked for Packard electronics which became Delphi when GM spun it off as an independant company. He retired in time to get the GM-United Autoworkers retirement package :thumbsup: instead of what Delphi is now offering frown

Thanks for the information Joe.

I would like to have an HVAC module on my LT150. That should leave me with a half dozen or so horses left over to mow with. :D
