We want to continue to strengthen the relationship of trust with John Deere and our new customers, to grow with them, to be their partners. We know they value our quality, our service in both development and production, and our delivery assurance. Nissan Cantabria’s commitment to win-win is what enables us to grow together with our customers.”
