The Association of Equipment Manufacturers has joined its association counterparts in Europe, Japan, China and Korea in a formal partnership to advance the construction equipment industry worldwide.
The five associations in the new International Associations Committee have signed a letter agreeing to general terms of cooperation. They are already meeting to provide guidance from the executive level on issues including emerging markets, global statistics, exhibitions and property rights.
The other associations are the China Construction Manufacturers Association, the Committee for European Construction Equipment, the Japan Construction Equipment Manufacturers Association and the Korea Construction Equipment Manufacturers Association.
“All our associations’ member companies are being affected by the rapid globalization of the construction equipment industry as they develop or extend relationships with channel partners, suppliers and customers worldwide,” said AEM president Dennis Slater.
