For years the North American Equipment Dealers Association has published the Equipment Dealer Buyer’s Guide for dealer members and associates. This annual directory of equipment industry manufacturers, suppliers and distributors is a sought after publication that dealers reference year round. 

Dealers are no strangers to incorporating new technology in the operation of their business and to meet the ever increasing technological needs of their customers. In today’s digital world, we have received requests that the Buyer’s Guide be provided in a digital format so that it can be viewed on-line on their computers and mobile devices. We are therefore pleased to introduce and debut our on-line digital version of the NAEDA’s 2013 Equipment Dealers Buyer’s Guide. 

All of the editorial information, company and product listings appear in the new digital version just as in the printed edition. However, the digital versions is more interactive with live links to company contacts and websites with the potential for embedded video displays, slide shows, and blow-in cards from companies and advertisers. 

We suggest you bookmark this link, digital.naeda.com so you can access the digital edition of the 2013 Equipment Dealer Buyer’s Guide throughout the year, and share it with your customers, clients, and colleagues. 

Whether you prefer print or pixels, our goal is to provide you with the industry’s best reference manual for companies, products and services catering the equipment dealer. Read More...

NAEDA is your watchdog for laws and rules that can impact your industry.

I believe most Americans know very little about the regulatory process at the federal level of government or even at their own state and local levels. Many times these regulations, rulings, decisions, etc. can be real train wrecks if allowed to stand or be implemented. Read More...

Tornado season is upon us and the unfortunate and catastrophic events of the past few days in Oklahoma, Texas and other areas serve as a reminder that disaster can strike at anytime, anywhere.  History has also shown that these storms and natural disasters impact thousands of households and businesses including those of NAEDA members and their employees.

NAEDA’s Equipment Dealers Foundation Disaster Relief Fund helps the employees of NAEDA dealer members who have been affected by natural disasters with emergency funds to help bridge the gap financially for the employees and families until insurance or other payments come in.  When faced with a disaster, the EDF has been able to step in and help.  Thanks to the generous support of dealers, manufacturers, suppliers and affiliated associations, EDF has assisted more than 130 families with more than $200,000 in direct disaster grants to employees of NAEDA members.

We have already received applications and provided financial assistance to dealership employees as a result of the recent tornados in Texas and likely will see more requests from the recent Oklahoma disasters.  Please consider a generous donation to the NAEDA Equipment Dealers Foundation.  Donations can be made on-line on the EDF website at: https://www.naeda.com/SupportEDF/EDFFoundationOnlinePayment.aspx Read More...
