The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), the leading trade organization for off-road equipment manufacturers and suppliers, has been named a Top Workplace in Southeast Wisconsin. AEM captures top workplace honor for the fifth time by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“This award is truly a testament to our dedicated, top-notch staff and its continued efforts to support our members, our industry and the customers they serve,” said AEM President Dennis Slater. “This honor is especially poignant this year because of all of the challenges and uncertainty we’ve faced. However, our team here at AEM continues to deliver on its mission of building momentum for our industry. This is all done while maintaining a positive and enthusiastic outlook for the future, a can-do attitude and a customer-focused mindset.”

This environment drives the quality work we do to build momentum for the off-road equipment manufacturing industry.”
