AEM Hall of Fame
Recognizing the Pioneering Spirit that Helps Our Industry Change the World
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers is proud to recognize those whose inventions, ideas, leadership and courage have made supreme contributions to the industry and to our quality of life.
The AEM Hall of Fame traces its roots to 1993 and development of the Construction Equipment Hall of Fame as a not-for-profit industry-wide initiative by Construction Equipment magazine. AEM served on its Board of Directors; the first Hall of Fame induction ceremony was held at CONEXPO 1993 and the last ceremony in 1999. The Hall lapsed in the early 2000s and AEM took over ownership and operation in 2008 creating the AEM Hall of Fame.
The AEM Hall of Fame honors the pioneering individuals who invented, managed, built and led the off-road equipment industry. Individually and collectively they represent some of the best, brightest and most influential minds in the history of the off-road equipment industry.
By honoring these individuals, the AEM Hall of Fame also strives to instill a deeper public understanding and appreciation for the continuing role of our industry in global business success and continued growth for our unparalleled standard of living.
Now, more than ever, we face the challenges of navigating a changing global economy. In no small way, the off-road equipment industry and its leadership will steer the way to increased employment and a higher gross national product. The example of the AEM Hall of Fame members is also a beacon for the workforce development necessary for future excellence in the off-road equipment industry.
Even more great accomplishments are on the horizon as our industry continues to work with corporations, government agencies, industry and business groups and the public to build a better and more productive society.
The AEM Hall of Fame accepts nominations year-round. Please honor those who have risen to the elite of our industry with a nomination to the AEM Hall of Fame.
