On June 15, the Far West Equipment Dealers Association Board of Directors voted to ratify a merger with Associated Equipment Distributors, according to an association news release.

The merger is expected to be finalized by the end of August.

AED is made up of construction, agriculture, mining, forestry, power generation and municipal equipment dealers. The merger confirms AED’s continued commitment to grow its representation of agricultural equipment distributors, currently representing 22% of its membership, according to the news release.

FWEDA rejected a merger with another association last year, which led FWEDA to seek an opportunity with AED, according to the release.

FWEDA members are expected to gain access to the full range of AED resources and benefits including benchmarking reports, employee education, seminars, technical assessments, and legal call counsel. AED also will continue to provide state lobbying efforts in the states served by FWEDA in addition to its strong advocacy at the national level.
