Paladin commend for commitment
By Pat Monroe
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announces that Paladin Attachments, a division of International Equipment Solutions, has joined the elite ranks of the I Make America campaign’s Gold-level company supporters.
I Make America is a grassroots campaign that was launched in September 2010 to dramatically improve American manufacturing policies to create more jobs in the U.S. and keep our economy competitive with other countries.
“We commend Paladin Attachments for achieving Gold status in the I Make America campaign,” said Dennis Slater, president of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). “As a member of AEM, Paladin Attachments exemplifies the commitment we need from all manufacturers around the country to send the message to Congress and the White House that our economy is in urgent need of a new manufacturing policy that will create jobs.”
“Paladin Attachments and our employees support and participate in the I Make America campaign because we are proud of what it stands for. We all have a sense of pride when we drive by a construction site and see that our attachments are contributing to our country’s infrastructure to keep America strong,” said Jennifer Fitzgerald, Paladin Marketing Communications Manager. “We believe we need to increase jobs for America’s equipment manufacturers so we are all able to prosper.”
I Make America Gold-Level supporters are an important group of companies that have achieved participation benchmarks marking them as industry leaders, including significant employee involvement; outreach to their state, local and federal legislators; promoting campaign sign-ups at trade shows and with allied trade associations; and production of A Day in American Life video telling the story of how their companies, employees and communities “make America.”
The campaign has enlisted the support of more than 21,000 people nationwide, AEM’s 850+ member companies, and industry organizations.
