The Agrievolution Alliance is a global network of agricultural equipment manufacturers made up of more than 6,000 member companies. The group has now announced the newest addition to their ranks, the National Association for Agricultural, Forestry and Landscaping Machinery (ANSEMAT) of Spain. ANSEMAT represents 63 agriculture equipment manufacturing companies and 124 total companies. This brings Alliance’s total to 14 equipment organizations from across the globe.
“We look forward to ANSEMAT’s participation in the Alliance as we continue to grow in scope and provide a valuable global voice on behalf of the industry,” said Anita Sennett, director, agriculture product management for the North American-based Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and Alliance Secretariat. “Our main message to the public and government officials is the essential role of agricultural machinery to improved quality of life and economic gains: advances in mechanization provide the increased productivity and efficiencies that farmers around the world need to feed and clothe the world.”
The addition of ANSEMAT also means more global market data will be available to members through the Agrievolution Statistics Program (ASP).
The program is a 40-year-old global data exchange among 17 companies that earlier this month officially voted in the Alliance as Secretariat to facilitate and help expand the program while receiving data for its members in return. AEM will act as Statistics Secretariat on behalf of the Alliance.
The Agrievolution Statistics Program is open to AEM and Alliance member companies, providing global product-specific market data to those reporting into the program, which currently covers five products: tractors, combines, forage harvesters and two types of hay balers. The program may be expanded in the future to include additional product categories.
Membership in Agrievolution Alliance offers market data, with biannual global sales and outlook reports, global conferences offering market and economic information, and advocacy for the industry.
