Vactor Announces AEM Participation

Vactor Manufacturing, a provider of vacuum excavators for utility, oil and gas, telecommunication and industrial water system applications, announced its participation in the Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ (AEM) Vacuum Excavator Leadership Group – a group formed to develop essential marketing, technical and safety resources with the intent of growing the vacuum excavator industry.

In addition to the top priority of promoting safe vacuum excavator operating practices, the group will focus on statistics program development and equipment standards development, as well as identifying any additional ways AEM may better support the vacuum excavator industry through existing or new programs, products
and services.

The Vacuum Excavator Leadership Group is developing a vacuum excavator statistics program covering truck-mounted and trailer units; Vactor is one of eight vacuum excavator manufacturers participating in
the program.

In addition to its participation in the program, Vactor recently collaborated with AEM, in conjunction with four other manufacturers through funding, product expertise and other resources, to develop a safety video for vacuum excavation equipment. Vactor also donated an HXX HydroExcavator PD vacuum excavator, and expert operators, to be used for filming the safety video. 815-672-3171, www.vactor.com.
