AMC is a national, member-driven industry association based in Canada representing nearly 300 agricultural equipment manufacturers and associated suppliers.
AMC members are located in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan. AMC also has members from other countries, including but not limited to the United States.
Our membership is diverse. More than half of AMC’s regular members operate in communities of less than 10,000 people, with some operating on the family farm, or in communities with a population lower than the workforce they employ. AMC membership also includes some very large manufacturers who employ over 500 people and have annual revenues in excess of $60 million.
Regardless of size, AMC members are committed to producing innovative equipment for farmers. Many started as farmers or in rural communities adjacent to farms, producing agricultural equipment that met the needs of local farmers and was unique to the growing conditions in their region. This sector of the agricultural equipment manufacturing industry is known as the "shortline" sector because of the manufacturers' specialized equipment and expertise.
Given the harsh growing conditions in Canada, equipment that can withstand the extreme temperatures and conditions is well positioned to succeed in other parts of the world. In this way, Canadian agricultural equipment manufacturers emerged as high-quality producers of specialized equipment.
Canada’s agricultural equipment manufacturers help feed the world.
