This summer, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) is launching a groundbreaking tour - The AEM Manufacturing Express. From the starting point in Knoxville, Iowa, to the final celebration in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this initiative will traverse over 20 states, spotlighting the crucial contributions of the equipment manufacturing sector. 

The tour is proud to feature a stellar roster of agriculture leaders: AGCO Corporation, CLAAS of America, CNH Industrial, Crenlo Engineered Cabs, Deere & Company, Elliot Equipment, Great Plains Manufacturing, Harper Industries, Hydrabed, Kinze Manufacturing, Kondex Corporation, Krone, Kubota Manufacturing of America, Kuhn North America, The Toro Company, Trimble, Vermeer, and Woods Equipment. This diverse group represents the breadth and depth of the industry, including agricultural machinery and equipment. 

At the heart of the AEM Manufacturing Express are the stories of innovation and resilience that define the sector. Visitors will be treated to an interactive game that delves into the advanced technologies shaping the future of equipment manufacturing, alongside showcases that highlight the critical role of this industry in the global economy and everyday life. 

The tour is more than a series of events; it's a mobilized platform for dialogue with policymakers, an educational journey for communities, and a celebration of the industry's workforce. In a year of significant political activity, AEM's initiative aims to amplify the voice of the manufacturing sector, advocating for supportive policies and recognizing the industry's ongoing contributions to innovation, infrastructure, and agriculture. 

Through the combined efforts of AEM, its member companies, and sponsors, the AEM Manufacturing Express is set to forge a path of awareness, appreciation, and advocacy, highlighting the dynamism and importance of equipment manufacturing in America.
