About the industry

By helping to build, power, and feed the world, our members’ equipment positively impacts the lives of every American, every day. While a combine harvester cutting corn or an excavator digging a trench is a common sight for many Americans, they may not realize what that equipment means to the hard-working Americans who build it and the impact the equipment manufacturing industry has on communities across America. Whether it is the welder controlling a robotic welding machine or the software engineer designing the controls for a new wheel loader, there are millions of jobs and opportunities created by the equipment manufacturing industry.
