Liebherr USA, Co. Construction Division receives AED Foundation partner award
Liebherr USA, Co.’s Construction Equipment division is the 2020 recipient of the Associated Equipment Distributors Foundation Partner Award. First presented in 2017, the award recognizes the distinguished service of a manufacturer or service provider that has offered significant contributions to the professional education goals of the AED Foundation. Foundation leaders said Liebherr’s strong support for the organization’s fundraising gala, which included donating a European vacation package to the live auction, allows the group to grow and support the industry through efforts such as addressing the industry’s skills gap and technician shortage. Established in 1919, Associated Equipment Distributors is an international trade association based in Schaumburg, Ill. It represents more than 700 equipment distributors, manufacturers, and industry service firms across North America. AED members sell, service and rent equipment to markets that include heavy and light construction, mining, agriculture, forestry, aggregates, and engines. Liebherr has been a member of AED since 1972.
