Rebuilding our Industry's Workforce
Each year, the U.S. heavy equipment distribution industry loses at least $2.4 billion in revenue and economic activity as a result of dealer's inability to find and retain skilled technical workers.
How can you help fix this problem? The first step is investing in The AED Foundation. When you invest in The AED Foundation's Annual Campaign, you are supporting the goals of improving the quality and success of your dealership through professional development, school accreditation and research.
Give Where It Is Needed Most:
This funding will ensure a more predictable and stable future for industry technicians and enhance the success of dealerships for years to come. Your donation fuels the work that allows The AED Foundation to develop a dealer model for success by developing industry-specific & on-demand education, creating opportunities for diesel technicians, providing national standards for equipment technician programs and awarding affiliated technical school scholarships.
