The Italian Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers Federation, formed in 2012 to replace Unacoma (the Italian Farm Machinery Manufacturers Association set up in 1945), brings together, and represents in Italy and abroad, the associations of Italian manufacturers of implements (Assomao), self-propelled machines (Assomase), tractors (Assotrattori), components (Comacomp) and gardening machinery (Comagarden).
The projects of the Federation are: the recognition of greater efficiency and autonomy for the single groups while allowing the aggregation of other institutional bodies representing sectors associated with mechanization; fostering an aggregation policy for rationalizing activities and the services systems for the various enterprises in the sector and linked to the sector with a view to expanding the federation's representation front and gaining greater weight in political and institutional quarters.
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).
