The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has presented Statistics Outstanding Merit Awards to 28 equipment manufacturing companies for exemplary participation in AEM equipment-specific statistics programs, enhancing the association’s ability to deliver meaningful benchmarking and business-planning information to members.
Market information, including statistics and market intelligence, is a key AEM member service to help companies succeed in the global marketplace. The association operates more than 245 unique product statistics-reporting programs, ranging from county-level retail sales data in North America to shipments data on a worldwide basis.
The AEM statistics merit awards recognize manufacturers’ timely and accurate data submission, meeting attendance and timely responses to ballots, audits and surveys during the calendar year.

AEM presented the merit awards for 2013 performance during its recent Annual Statistics Conference, held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
