AIMHE’s mission is to represent and defend the interests of the machine tool importer and distributor sector in Spain

Established as a non-profit and state-level association, AIMHE’s mission is to represent and defend the interests of the machine tool importer and distributor sector in Spain. The Association currently includes 49 associated companies.

AIMHE was established on September 17, 2009 as a non-profit association. On May 27, the presentation of AIMHE took place in Bilbao at a press conference in which its Board of Directors appeared to explain the nature of its constitution and objectives.

AIMHE considers of vital importance that the companies in the sector are associated and have a voice of their own in the different public and private bodies, both national and international, that are of common interest.

AIMHE sets as well a minimum standards of conduct to ensure proper coexistence between our members, providing a solid base for their integration into the Association, in defense of common and representative interests that constitute its object, which at the same time, results for the benefit of better practices in the market.
