  • “Equipment manufacturing is the backbone of the American economy,” said Kip Eideberg, Senior Vice President, Government and Industry Relations at AEM. “Voters are increasingly worried about the future of manufacturing in our country and are looking for candidates to support the policies that will keep our industry strong and America exceptional. That is why we are grateful to these candidates for their leadership and unwavering support for the 2.8 million people who make the equipment that builds, powers, and feeds America.” 


Jobs and the state of the U.S. economy consistently rank as the top issue for voters. And in many parts of the country, family-sustaining jobs and the health of the local economy depend directly on the strength of equipment manufacturing. That is why it is imperative that candidates affirm their support for rebuilding and modernizing our nation’s infrastructure, expanding access to foreign markets for U.S. manufactured good and components, preserve and improve our tax system to promote strong and sustained economic growth, funding programs to attract, train, and retain the next generation workforce, and strengthening rural America.
