LBX in Lexington, Kentucky is teaming up with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers 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.
“We all have a unique opportunity to let our political leaders know about our priorities so that we continue to build stronger communities in the years to come,” said Eric Sauvage, President and CEO, LBX Company. “I would like to thank AEM for their dedication in supporting our industry for more than a century. We are proud at LBX to partner with AEM in this very important Equipped to Vote national campaign.”
“The state of U.S. manufacturing is clearly on the minds of many Kentucky 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. “LBX 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 LBX to make sure all employees are able to make their voices heard this election and shape the future of our country.
