Highway Equipment Company, manufacturer of Hi-Way road maintenance equipment and New Leader crop nutrient applicators, welcomed the I Make America campaign to its Cedar Rapids, Iowa, factory Sept. 8 to celebrate contributions of manufacturing to the local and national economies, and to recognize employees and the impact they have on American manufacturing.

I Make America is a grassroots campaign launched five years ago by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, a global trade association representing manufacturers of farm, construction, utility and mining equipment in North America. I Make America is dedicated to raising awareness of sound public policies that benefit the entire equipment manufacturing industry.

In 2016, I Make America will visit more than three dozen manufacturers to engage both employees and elected officials on the issues that matter to manufacturers.  The tour is supported by a traveling truck featuring a custom interactive experience that engages players on manufacturing issues at stake this election season.
