AHAM has more than 140 members, including manufacturers of major,
portable, and floor care appliances as well as suppliers to the
industry. AHAM provides services in five core areas:
AHAM operates a robust data program that tracks shipments of major and floor care appliances in the U.S. and Canada. This invaluable data is used not only by the industry, but also by the financial sector and various government agencies. AHAM publishes more than 500 unique data reports that measure trends, product characteristics, and product forecasts. As an AHAM member, you can participate in these programs and help shape the reports to increase your knowledge of the industry.
AHAM’s government relations team represents the views of the industry before elected officials and government agencies in the U.S. and Canada, and works to influence legislation and regulations. AHAM regularly reports on new developments or changes that might affect its members.
AHAM has a skilled technical staff and is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited Standards Development Organization (SDO) and an EPA-recognized verification administrator. AHAM writes and maintains numerous performance testing standards and represents the views of industry before U.S, and Canadian and international performance and safety standards development organizations.
Since 1967, AHAM has randomly selected and tested products using an independent laboratory. AHAM publishes the results online for anyone to search. Testing through AHAM is not a market requirement. However, manufacturers who voluntarily join AHAM’s verification programs demonstrate a high level of commitment to earning and keeping consumers’ trust.
As a member of AHAM, you’ll receive Plug into AHAM
, a bi-weekly electronic newsletter. This intelligence report keeps members abreast of the top industry issues. Additionally, AHAM serves as the industry voice before media, retailers, consumers and other stakeholders to keep them up to date on the latest issues and trends from the industry.
Additionally, members from all four divisions gather each spring for AHAM’s annual member meeting. Attendees gain insight into changes affecting the industry and hear from influential experts from manufacturing, government, retail, and other sectors.
What do AHAM members have to say?
"Why do GE Appliances and other member companies support AHAM? Because we know that we can do things through AHAM that we can't do as well acting separately."
-Earl Jones, Senior Counsel,
GE Consumer and Industrial
“AHAM’s technical standards work provides enormous help to my company in keeping up with the myriad of safety and performance standards. But more so, AHAM helps shape these standards for the benefit of manufacturers and consumers.”
-Ed McAssey, COO
Lasko Products, Inc.
