  • Title: AEM | Newsroom - News Releases -- Agricultural machinery associations offer positive assessment of future industry development
    Descriptive info: 12/11/2012.. Agricultural machinery associations offer positive assessment of future industry development.. Overall, the global agricultural machinery industry remains positive; worldwide production volume is expected to increase to $110 billion ( 86 billion) by year-end 2012 and could grow by another five percent in 2013, according to reports from the Agrievolution Economic Committee, a gathering of the world s largest agricultural machinery associations.. The North American-based Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) participates in the committee, which promotes the international exchange of agricultural machinery market information for greater market transparency of agricultural modernization requirements on an economic basis.. The German VDMA Agricultural Machinery Association is secretariat of the committee, which held its 2012 annual meeting at the trade fair Agrosalon in Moscow, Russia in late fall.. AEM is secretariat of the parent Agrievolution Alliance.. During the meeting, Charlie O Brien, AEM vice president and agriculture sector leader, noted that in the.. United States.. , the Midwestern drought was a major challenge for farmers this year.. However, with insurance payments substantially covering harvest losses, only a slight negative influence on machinery demand was expected.. AEM produces a monthly tractor and combine retail sales report.. By October 2012, total tractor sales were 10 percent above a year earlier.. The combine sector has recorded a deficit in the eight-percent range after three years that have been characterized by very high sales figures (2009 - 2011).. Here s a look at non-U.. markets, from the report.. Reasons for overall positive global expectations included increased purchasing power of farmers worldwide due to strong commodity prices, and a trend in both developed and emerging nations to increase yield with newer equipment technologies and innovations.. For the.. European Union.. overall, 2012 market volume for agricultural machinery is expected to be comparable with the last record year 2008.. The level is expected to remain high in 2013; however, there is the possibility of a small sales reduction.. Italy.. reports sales declines of 17 percent by end of September 2012 compared to 2011 with higher exports offsetting a slower domestic market.. Germany and France..  ...   growth reached 17 percent for the first seven months of 2012.. For tractors, however, growth was limited to the above-100HP segment.. For 2013, growth is expected of slightly below 10 percent.. India.. : After 25-percent growth in market volume for agricultural machines in 2011, a 10-percent increase is expected for 2012.. Government subsidy programs are cited as a stimulus factor.. Russia.. : While deliveries to dealers during the first eight months of 2012 decreased by an average of approximately 10 percent, the entire market has remained stable or even grew in some segments as compared with 2011.. For 2013, market growth up to 8 percent is expected for the Russian Federation.. Turkey.. : After a strong 2011, business growth by August was 2 percent less than the year before, with higher exports compensating for declines in the domestic market.. Ag machinery exports rank sixth among all Turkish exports.. A poorer 2012 harvest and reduced government subsidies could slow domestic development..

  • Title: AEM | Newsroom - News Releases -- AEM Hall of Fame announces 2012 inductees
    Descriptive info: 11/9/2012.. AEM Hall of Fame announces 2012 inductees.. John Deere, Pierre Bataille and Wood Brothers honored.. Celebrating equipment industry innovators leaders; a legacy for continued industry growth achievement.. The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announces the 2012 inductees into the AEM Hall of Fame, which recognizes and celebrates outstanding individuals in the off-road equipment industry, and their legacy of innovation, service and leadership.. Their vision and hard work have been critical to advancing global economic and social prosperity; their legacy strengthens continued industry contributions to improving our quality of life, and serves as an inspiration for tomorrow s leaders.. The 2012 inductees into the AEM Hall of Fame are:.. John Deere (Deere Company).. Pierre Bataille (Poclain).. Wood Brothers - Keith, Leonard and Mervel (Woods Equipment Company).. AEM Hall of Fame inductees have been evaluated by an independent panel of industry experts on five criteria that are vital to the health of the off-road equipment manufacturing industry: 1) innovation, 2) industry contributions, 3) leadership, 4) corporate citizenship/social responsibility and 5) sustainability.. For more information on the AEM Hall of Fame and all its inductees, go online to the.. AEM Hall of Fame section.. of the AEM website.. org/HallofFame.. About the 2012 Hall of Fame inductees.. Below are summaries for each of the 2012 honorees with some of the reasons they were selected for induction.. John Deere was a leader in his day in vision, innovation, and improving the quality of life for his fellow citizens.. The company marks its 175th anniversary in 2012, recognizing the significant influence Deere has had for almost two centuries in equipment manufacturing an impact the Illinois blacksmith could not have imagined when he was first compelled to create tools that have evolved into machinery that helps build and feed the world.. John Deere has been synonymous with equipment almost since John Deere moved from New England to Grand Detour, Illinois, where his skills as a blacksmith were immediately in demand.. Deere ultimately took his business to Moline, Illinois, which had access to better transportation routes and essential energy sources.. If Deere could have seen the future in 1837 when he created his innovative self-scouring plow for Midwestern farmers, he would have been amazed and proud to see that his namesake company would become a world leader in machinery manufacturing.. Deere built a global company on the core values of integrity, quality, commitment  ...   first staffed company cafeterias for his employees and a network of buses to safely transport them to and from work; while not a widespread practice in the 1960s, Bataille instituted noise-reduction measures in the plant and on excavators.. Bataille s civic service included leadership of French standardiza-tion and business development organizations, and he also served as president of the Commit-tee for European Construction Equipment.. In 1990, Bataille was awarded the rank of Officer of the Legion of Honor by the French government in recognition of his entrepreneurial leadership.. Wood Brothers Keith, Leonard and Mervel (Woods Equipment Company).. Keith, Leonard and Mervel Wood were problem solvers, risk takers and entrepreneurs who used these skills to fuel their drive for inventing and manufacturing.. As pioneers in the development of rotary cutters and mowers, the Wood brothers helped create a prevalent product category for the short line industry.. One invention that dramatically affected the agricultural industry is the company s iconic Batwing rotary cutter, known generically as the flex-wing rotary cutter, first shipped in 1963.. Other key inventions include the patented single V-belt drive system, used on virtually all residential and commercial mowers in use today, and the single attachment pin blade retention system, a design still used on most Woods cutters today.. The brothers sought to adapt their equipment to all types, sizes and models of trac-tors, including two adaptors that were predecessors of today s standard 3-point hitch.. In the 1970s, the Wood brothers elevated product support to a new level, ensuring sales and service were available across the country in the days before overnight delivery.. Starting the company after World War II in Oregon, Illinois, the Wood brothers contributed greatly to job creation and development of skilled labor in the region, training thousands as welders, machinists, metal fab-ricators, painters, engineers and office personnel.. Sustainability for the brothers was always about doing right, for example, metal scrap recycling (not widespread in the 40s and 50s).. Nominations for the next Hall of Fame will open in June 2013.. At the 2012 AEM Hall of Fame induction ceremony at the AEM annual conference November 9 (L-R) past AEM Hall of Fame inductees Don Landoll, Gary Godbersen, LeRoy Hagenbuch and Ron DeFeo; accepting for 2012 inductees Pierre Bataille: Laurent and Guillaume Bataille, Wood Brothers: Nancy (Wood) Wyatt and Jerry Johnson (Woods Equipment Co.. ) and John Deere: Sam Allen (Deere Company)..
