U.S. Rep. Alma Adams (N.C. Dist. 12) recently met with officials of Ascendum Machinery and Associated Equipment Distributors at Ascendum's corporate offices to discuss workforce development.

Attracting skilled workers remains a major challenge for all fields, but it is especially important for the construction equipment industry, which is losing more than $2.4 billion in revenue annually.

"Ascendum Machinery is committed to ensuring that the most qualified people are available for their customers," the company said in a statement. "Both Ascendum Machinery and AED are optimistic about the partnership of industry, education, and government, which, by working together, will lead to a stronger workforce for the construction equipment industry."
