GenKey takes complexity out of the equation for the customer by delivering a complete range of services to dramatically simplify the entire process. MODEX is one of the largest expositions in the Americas for manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions. The show provides extensive educational opportunities in three solution-specific centers: manufacturing & assembly, fulfillment & delivery, and information technology (IT).
