I Make America
A Day In American Life: Krone
Krone North America knows the importance of American agriculture. Krone manufactures hay and forage equipment that supports American farmers in the fields. Now they are asking Congress to support American farmers by passing a farm bill that will allow farmers to continue to feed the world.
Ambassador Spotlight: Ashleigh Stratton
When asked why Krone decided to become involved with the “I Make America” campaign, ambassador Ashleigh Stratton cited “the focus on export agreements, the Highway Bill and the Farm Bill.”
“These agreements and pieces of legislation can have a tremendous effect on our customers and dealers so we see the great importance of getting them passed,” said Stratton. “We first started supporting the campaign by encouraging our co-workers and our dealer network to join I Make America's efforts by signing up on IMakeAmerica.com. As we learned about more ways to get involved, we took advantage of them, too.”
As an active supporter of the I Make America campaign, Krone has encouraged employees to sign up as well as to contact their Congressional representatives. Krone has advocated for the campaign at farm shows and dealer meetings, in addition to promoting I Make America in print advertising and on the Krone website and Facebook page. Krone CEO Rusty Fowler is currently serving as the chairman of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and has visited Capitol Hill to speak personally with members of Congress about I Make America and passing the Highway Bill and the Farm Bill.
“Our business and our customers need a modern, safe transportation infrastructure system to get our goods and crops to market quickly and economically,” said Stratton. “That means good roads, bridges and waterways. Not to mention that investing in our infrastructure means more jobs for Americans - we all want to see our country working again.”
