AED pledges support for new Administration, sees industrial-growth potential
Brian McGuire, president and CEO of Associated Equipment Distributors, released a statement on the 2016 U.S. federal election results from the association’s Government Affairs Office in Alexandria, Virginia.
“AED and construction equipment distributors and manufacturers across North America look forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump and members of the next Congress on pro-growth policies to put the United States on strong economic footing for years to come,” McGuire said.
McGuire cited the potential for change, pledging AED’s bilateral support to create and sustain a climate of job growth and free enterprise.
“There’s an immediate opportunity to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, reform the nation’s tax code, develop the next generation of skilled workers and lower the cost of doing business for small companies,” McGuire said. “The voters have spoken, and AED is standing by to work with members of both parties to create an economic environment that encourages job creation, growth, investment and entrepreneurship.”
AED is a worldwide trade group representing companies involved in the distribution, rental, and support of equipment used in construction, mining, energy, forestry, power generation, agriculture, and industrial applications.
