HISTORY OF OUR ASSOCIATION
In 1950 a group of manufacturers who were in Chicago to visit with their distributors decided they had some things in common:
None were major companies.
Each was meeting a specialized need within the burgeoning farm equipment market.
They recognized the need for a common voice that could connect them with one another and represent their interests. That same year The Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association was founded with 46 member companies.
While many things have changed since 1950, the association remains committed to meeting the ever-changing needs of its members. That commitment to our members has resulted in our continued growth in members and in the services we are able to offer.
Today over 600 member companies enjoy the wide variety of services offered by the Association. From large multi-nationals to the smallest family owned and operated business we are willing and able to provide the value-added service our members have come to expect.
