CEMA is the association representing the European agricultural machinery industry. With 10 national member associations, the CEMA network represents both large multinational companies as well as the numerous European SMEs active in this sector. CEMA includes more than 4,500 manufacturers, generating an aggregated annual turnover of more than EUR 26 billion. 135,000 people are directly employed in the sector, with a further 125,000 people working in distribution and maintenance.
CEMA’s mission is to work towards a balanced legislative and regulatory framework in the EU that:
• supports the competitiveness of the industry in Europe;
• enables the industry to provide smart solutions to help farmers worldwide to grow food affordably and sustainably;
• promotes a deeper understanding of the European agricultural machinery industry among EU decision makers, regulators and stakeholders.
Precision Farming and the adoption of smart Farming tools have been firmly placed as a priority on CEMA’s agenda for the coming years. It tries to promote uptake off smart farming not only politically, but also with practical demos.
