The Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) and its affiliated groups have become members of the Engineering and Machinery Alliance (EAMA) to lobby in the UK and Europe on behalf of agricultural and outdoor power machinery manufacturers, importers and distributors.

EAMA already comprises ten trade associations, representing 1,400 firms with a turnover of some £7 billion in the mechanical engineering sector.

Roger Lane-Nott, Director General AEA: “The AEA is delighted to join EAMA. As a Trade Association that has been going since 1875 we are used to change and there is plenty around at the moment. We believe that working together will provide a much greater voice for the engineering and machinery businesses in UK and we look forward to playing our full part in EAMA.”

UK mechanical engineering turnover is some £32 billion according to the latest ABI figures, including £1.7 billion from the agricultural and forestry machinery producers.
