Welcome to Modex 2012—the industry’s newest expo for manufacturing and supply chain innovation. At Modex you will see best-in-class manufacturing and supply chain solutions from over 500 exhibiting companies along with a conference of more than 100 sessions.

The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) wants to make it as easy as possible to find the products and solutions that interest you and address your operational and supply chain challenges.
