The Association of Equipment Manufacturers is inviting nominations for its 2020 Hall of Fame, which seeks to recognize those who exemplify innovation, industry contributions, leadership, social responsibility, and sustainability in the equipment manufacturing industry.
Anyone in the industry or the wider public can submit a nomination. Nominations are open until June 12 and can be submitted online at https://www.aem.org/about-aem/hall-of-fame/nomination-form/.
In 2019, AEM inducted its first woman leader the Hall of Fame, Mary Andringa of Vermeer Corporation. This year, AEM is looking to recognize contributions from more diverse corners of the equipment manufacturing world, including those from different roles and from smaller manufacturers.
Since 2008, the Hall of Fame has honored pioneering individuals who invented, managed, built and led the off-road equipment industry, including luminaries from John Deere and J.I. Case to William Smith Otis and Benjamin Holt.
“These are the people who have defined, and continue to define, the equipment manufacturing industry,” said AEM President Dennis Slater. “The ideas, innovations and inventions these leaders have developed, when combined, have created a better life for every single human who sets foot in our world from now until eternity.”
