AEM acquires data analytics company Hargrove & Associates

First publishedon www.AggBusiness.com

The US-based Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has purchased Minneapolis-based Hargrove & Associates, Inc. (HAI) a data processing and business analytics company.

At a time when the innovative use of data is transforming the manufacturing industry, the acquisition allows AEM to enhance and build upon its statistics program to better meet the needs of its membership. 

AEM has been an HAI client since 1989. Both organisations believe this is an opportunity to further develop the relationship and the statistics platform.  

“This investment is part of our commitment to our strategic plan which includes further developing our statistics program - a benefit of AEM membership,” said Dennis Slater, president of AEM. “Insights gained by our members through participation in AEM’s statistic program give them an advantage in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. Through investment in HAI we look to sharpen this competitive advantage.”

Claire Hargrove, president at HAI, said: “We are looking forward to how this deepening of our 30 year working relationship with AEM will position both of our groups for exciting growth and technological opportunities while maintaining our strong commitment to the data program so valued by the equipment industry.”

Hargrove said HAI will operate as a stand-alone subsidiary of AEM in its current Minneapolis office. “We foresee no changes to how HAI currently works with its customer base or handling of data.”

In addition to customer care and support, HAI employees will collaborate with AEM on projects using advanced data analytics that will help bring additional value to AEM members.
