Strengthening the Canadian Agriculture Equipment Manufacturing Industry Across Canada AMC Welcomes HSBC Bank Canada

January 30, 2017: The Agricultural Manufacturers of Canada (AMC) is pleased to announce a new corporate partnership with HSBC Bank Canada that takes effect immediately. HSBC Bank Canada joins Farm Credit Canada (FCC), Aon Risk Management, Supreme Basics and Glacier FarmMedia as corporate partners.

Under the leadership of president, Leah Olson, AMC has a new strategic plan that focuses the organization on advocacy and increasing knowledge about the important economic contributions of agriculture equipment manufacturers across Canada.  In 2015, Canadian agriculture equipment manufacturers exported just over $1.8 billion worth of implements to more than 150 countries. Key markets included the United States, Australia, Russia, Kazakhstan and Germany.

With a growing number of members, AMC collaborates with corporate partners to provide ongoing support, services and programs that help members' businesses grow.

“Having a corporate partner like HSBC Bank Canada whose business is global provides a great opportunity for agriculture equipment manufacturers across Canada to have exposure to experts not just in Canada but worldwide.  More than 80% of our members export making this partnership a win-win,” said Olson. “Our mission is to grow the Canadian agriculture equipment manufacturing and with HSBC as one of our corporate partners, we are confident this can be done.”

“Through our research, we know that companies that do business internationally grow faster than those with strictly domestic businesses, and AMC has a long-standing history of working with companies to grow their businesses internationally,” adds Frank Venturo, Senior Vice President & Head of Commercial Banking, Ontario & Atlantic Region at HSBC Bank Canada.  “We are extremely pleased to be a corporate partner with AMC and look forward to working with them and their members.”
