June 18, 2017 - Kobelco Construction Equipment USA, Liebherr, Link-Belt, and Terex are among 29 equipment manufacturers that recently received recognition from The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) for outstanding statistical reporting.


The “Statistics Outstanding Merit Awards” recognize AEM member companies for superior participation in AEM data reporting programs. 

AEM statistics activities encompass more than 200 unique product programs that cover information from county-level retail sales in North America to global shipments.

Winning companies received a cumulative performance rating of 90% or higher based on corporate-wide North America performance in areas such as timely and accurate data submission, meeting attendance, and timely response to ballots, audits, and surveys during 2017.

“Our statistics programs are member-driven, and we applaud the dedication of our award winners. They help ensure AEM delivers optimum value with consistent, accurate, and reliable market data that members can use for improved business forecasting and production planning,” said AEM Director of Statistics Rex Sprietsma.
