FederUnacoma is a member of Confindustria (the National Manufacturers Federation), and in Europe CEMA (European Committee of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturer Associations), EGMF (European Garden Machinery Industry Federation) and Euromot (European Association of Internal Combustion Engines).
FederUnacoma activities are aimed at providing incentives for agricultural mechanization, activities in the energy sector, public and private groundskeeping, promoting the development technological development of the inventory of mechanical machinery and equipment of reference in Italy and abroad and providing association members with support focused on assistance and innovative services.
FederUnacoma’s associates account for 80% of Italian production, with exports accounting for 65% of this production.
The activities of FederUnacoma are mainly in the areas of technical planning, economics and statistics, assistance and promotions and communications, all of which working together take on a “cultural and specialize character for dealings with outsiders, institutions as well as professionals, on the mechanization front as a factor for socio-economic growth in various sectors of work.
FederUnacoma formulates proposals of interest for the category represented for drafting incentive legislation to introduce in various ways for the mechanization represented and measures for facilitating the technological renovation of the obsolete machinery inventory.
For carrying out its work, FederUnacoma relies on the support of the Unacoma Service service company, a fully controlled member of the federation. The purpose of the company is to provide services in Italy and abroad predominantly in the sector of agricultural, worksite and gardening machinery and for the components and affiliated industries. Unacoma Service is the company of reference for communications, marketing and assistance for the member companies and promotions abroad.
Moreover, Unacoma Service organizes such great events as Eima International, Eima Show, EimaAgrimach and Agrilevante ensures administrative and information service for these events and coordinates control and manages supplies.
For its part, FederUnacoma plays its own role in promoting an entrepreneurial mentality on mechanization also through membership in national and international agencies and organizations active in these sectors of reference.
The FederUnacoma logo repeats the historic features of the Unacoma logo made up of a wheel symbolizing mechanical-agricultural work, sheaves of wheat and the teeth of a crawler tractor with an eagle overhead to identify Confindustria, the Italian National Manufacturers Federation FederUnacoma is a member of. The intention of the logo is to underscore the historic origins of the federation as an important and essential factor on which to base the beginnings of the new, expanded and more choral representation of the federation.
