Over Half a Century of Service
June 1, 1946 -

The Ohio Equipment Distributors Association (OEDA) was officially launched on June 1, 1946, with 19 charter members. OEDA, an organization of construction and industrial equipment distributors, was formed "to foster and extend good relationships between construction equipment dealers; encourage wise and needful legislation, regulations and trade practices; foster manufacturer-dealer relationships in cooperation with other trade groups; to collect and disseminate information among the members; to promote necessary and useful construction; and to support the Associated Equipment Distributors." 

In a marketing tool from 1952, then Executive Secretary Kenneth Dinsmore wrote, "The Association is at present the best medium in which to express a general need collectively, and only by being associated can one contribute to any such movement." We couldn't say it better today.

A renewed interest in a unified voice for distributors took place with the advent of the interstate highways in Ohio. During this time, OEDA turned its primary focus to addressing the increased equipment needs and labor challenges associated with the fast-paced, demanding construction schedule of the interstate highway system.

Over time, OEDA's mission statement evolved into its current form: "To keep its members abreast of the latest development in the industry, work shoulder-to-shoulder with other trade associations in the construction industry to promote more work for the contractor, and to work in close harmony with the Associated Equipment Distributors to provide a constant flow of ideas between companies engaged in a common industry."

In 1987, OEDA's leadership saw the need for a stronger voice in legislative matters and better information dissemination on regulatory issues. Following a thorough investigation, the OEDA Board of Directors contracted with the FPER Association (now the Ohio-Michigan Equipment Dealers Association) to provide administrative services. With the additional member services, increased legislative efforts, and a full-time association staff working on its behalf, OEDA flourished and grew by leaps and bounds. Today, true to its founding ideals, OEDA continues to be the voice of Ohio's construction and industrial equipment distributors.
