The Engine Manufacturers Association, which includes the Truck Manufacturers Association, is now using the name Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association for the trade group.


The Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association continues to represent its members on issues related to engines used in nonroad construction and farming equipment, locomotives, marine vessels, lawn, garden and utility equipment, trucks and buses, and stationary generators worldwide, and on medium- and heavy-duty truck issues related to safety, noise and fuel efficiency.

"The name change announced today reflects the reality of how we have been doing business for some time," said Jed Mandel, president of the association. "Our board recognized the importance of combining our identity since we have integrated engine and truck issues in our activities. As demonstrated by the recently completed EPA and NHTSA greenhouse gas and fuel efficiency rulemaking, engine and truck regulatory issues are becoming increasingly intertwined, and the name Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association better communicates the scope of our activities. We will continue to represent our members that manufacture engines used in nonroad mobile and stationary sources in the same manner as we have in the past."

No other changes are anticipated. Association and staff contact information will remain the same.

In keeping a link to its past history and tradition, the Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association will use a modified version of the familiar "EMA" logo and will continue to use the initials "EMA."

The Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association represents worldwide manufacturers of internal combustion engines and on-highway medium- and heavy-duty trucks. EMA works with government and industry to help the nation achieve its goals of cleaner air and safer highways, and to ensure that environmental and safety standards and regulations are technologically feasible, cost-effective, and provide safety and environmental benefits.
