The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) will hit the road this summer to tell the story of the U.S. equipment manufacturing industry and celebrate the 2.3 million men and women who are part of the industry.

The "AEM Manufacturing Express" will launch on July 1, 2024, at Weiler, Inc. in Knoxville, Iowa, and travel across the U.S. through October when it will wrap up with a final event at Komatsu in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The tour will visit more than 20 states, with stops planned at more than 80 equipment manufacturers in communities across the Midwest, Southeast, and Mid-Atlantic. Participating manufacturers include AGCO Corporation, CNH Industrial, Caterpillar Inc., Cummins Inc., Deere & Company, Komatsu, Kubota, The Toro Company, Vermeer Corporation, and Volvo Group.

"The AEM Manufacturing Express will hit the road this year to celebrate the equipment manufacturing industry and highlight its vital role in building a modern and resilient infrastructure, putting food on people's tables, and powering vital public services and utilities," said AEM President Megan Tanel.

The centrepiece of the AEM Manufacturing Express tour is an interactive game designed to showcase the technology that powers modern equipment and test players' knowledge about the technologies, processes, people, and products in equipment manufacturing across the U.S.

Elected officials will join manufacturing workers and their friends and families along the route as the AEM Manufacturing Express celebrates the industry's many contributions to small towns and big cities. Each stop will feature the game, thought leadership, giveaways, food, and entertainment to tell the story of equipment manufacturing while also highlighting the policies that will strengthen the industry.
