volvoCEThe Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announces that Volvo CE has once again 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.

"Volvo CE’s active engagement with their elected officials and the policies that affect the equipment manufacturing business has been critical to the success of I Make America," said Dennis Slater, President of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). "We congratulate Volvo CE on their success achieving gold level status and look forward to their crucial support on future advocacy efforts."

"Volvo CE is committed to supporting industry wide initiatives that bring growth, stability and jobs to the country while the economy continues to bounce back," said Bill Law, Volvo CE Corporate Communications Vice President. "We want to play our part and are proud to partner with AEM and the I Make America campaign."
