Washington, D.C. — Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) President Dennis Slater congratulated President Joe Biden and Vice-president Kamala Harris on their inauguration. He pledged that equipment manufacturers will actively support the efforts of the new administration to confront the nation’s many challenges.
Slater added that one of the most important challenges to address will be ending the pandemic and ensuring a safe and rapid economic recovery.
“On behalf of the equipment manufacturing industry, we congratulate President Joe Biden and Vice-president Kamala Harris and express our sincere commitment in working with them to help unite our country after this historic election,” said Slater. “President Biden has pledged to revitalize U.S. manufacturing by building back better, and we look forward to working with him to fulfil that promise. Equipment manufacturers believe the best way to build a bridge toward economic recovery is by putting policies ahead of politics and working together to lift everyone up and leave no one behind. President Biden has laid out a positive and optimistic vision for our country, and we look forward to working with him and his Administration to mobilize the talent, grit, and innovation of the American people to bring about a better, stronger, and more prosperous America.”
