Ken Cook Co. has attained the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) 2015 Pillar of the Industry Award for the “I Make America” program. The company has won the award for the third year in a row.
“We are grateful for the award and are glad to take a pro-manufacturing stance at our company,” says Ken Cook, CEO and President of Ken Cook Co.
Ken Cook Co. proudly hosted an “I Make America” event at its facility in Milwaukee, WI in 2014. AEM developed the “I Make America” program and tour to emphasize how equipment manufacturers and their employees help “make America” every day. Organizing an “I Make America” event helps strengthen relationships between company leaders and elected officials and allows employees the chance to team up with “I Make America” supporters and get their voices heard in Washington.
The AEM Pillar of the Industry Awards will be handed out at the AEM Annual Conference in November of 2015 at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne in Miami, FL. The theme of this AEM conference, “Changing Tides,” will be explored as experts address ways to grow companies while navigating changes in industry, politics and the economy.
