The aim of this year's CECE Congress is to share best practice in "agility" within our industry, and highlight examples from other sectors. We need all of the industry to become more open-minded and explore new areas to compete better. With these challenges in mind, we decided to give the 2014 CECE Congress the title "The Construction Equipment Industry in an AGILE world".

The European Machinery Industry – at the forefront of employment, innovation & sustainable growth

CECE CEMA and FEM have organised an event to introduce our industry to new and re-elected Members of the European Parliament, the European Commission’s new officers, and other key stakeholders. The event will be co-chaired by MEPs Rübig, Pietikäinen and Ford who are already knowledgeable of our industry and accepted to host this event in the Parliament. The event will take place on 5th November at lunch, in the Members Salon of the European Parliament. Programme is available here

CECE Business Climate Index July 2014

According to CECE Business Barometer of July 2014, the negative future business expectations push business climate index further down, while industry sales stay on a growth path.
When it comes to the next 6 months: sales expectations are still optimistic, but recovery is clearly slowing down. Among all product groups, earthmoving equipment manufacturers have the most positive outlook for the next 6 months. The UK manufacturers remain the most optimistic.
On rentals, a majority of manufacturers reported increasing rental business in the first half of 2014. Even on this market, the strongest momentum was observed in the UK. Manufacturers plan to keep stable the regular workforce, while a majority of manufacturers plans to reduce temporary workforce. During the past month orders from European markets are still slightly growing. In fact, one out of two surveyed manufacturers report growing order intake from beyond Europe.
