AGCO has acquired JCA Industries Inc., a Manitoba (Canada)-based company that develops software and electronic systems to control and automate tractors and agricultural machinery.
Headquartered in Winnipeg, JCA specializes in the design of electronic systems and software development to automate and control agricultural equipment. JCA’s path planning, sensor fusion and remote-control software products are used today by original equipment manufacturers. In addition, JCA has been serving some of the world’s leading agriculture equipment manufacturers as a provider for electronic designs and software for autonomous machine development.
“The purchase of JCA is another important addition to our precision agriculture capabilities,” said Eric Hansotia, AGCO’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “JCA is one of the most advanced developers of autonomous machine technologies for off-road OEMs, and this acquisition will accelerate AGCO’s delivery of machine automation and autonomous systems that improve farmer productivity.”
Details around the deal were not disclosed.
