Kondex Corporation in Lomira, Wisconsin is teaming up with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) on Equipped To Vote, a national campaign to engage, educate, and mobilize the 2.8 million men and women of the equipment manufacturing industry leading up to the election this fall. The centerpiece of the campaign is a pledge to support pro-manufacturing candidates and to encourage them to champion policies that strengthen the economy, support communities, and ensure the continued growth and success of equipment manufacturers.
“Kondex supports the Equipped to Vote program because we believe in a well-informed electorate. While neither AEM nor Kondex endorses a particular political party, we want people to be educated about the decisions that they are making on election day,” commented Kondex President Keith Johnson. “The future of manufacturing resides on the decisions made on the ballot. To strengthen manufacturing in our country, it is important to support candidates who will work toward improving our industry.”
“The state of U.S. manufacturing is clearly on the minds of many Wisconsin voters this election year. That is why it is critical that we give them the tools and resources they need to support pro-manufacturing candidates,” said Kip Eideberg, AEM Senior Vice President of Government and Industry Relations. “Kondex has been a steadfast supporter of our efforts to promote policies essential to growing equipment manufacturing in the United States, and we are grateful for their partnership on the Equipped to Vote campaign.”
The Equipped to Vote campaign features a Digital Action Center, an online platform that features information about the policies that matter to the industry, as well as tools and resources to encourage greater civic engagement. It will allow users to take a series of actions in support of pro-manufacturing policies and share them through various social channels. Participants will have the opportunity to win weekly prizes, as well as a grand prize at the end of the campaign.
The Equipped to Vote campaign demonstrates the commitment by Kondex to make sure all associates can make their voices heard this election and shape the future of our country.
