Genie, the Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) segment of Terex Corporation, is on that list.

 

The Genie exhibit in The Tech Experience will showcase practical innovations for the aerial industry. The company will compare current secondary guarding systems for operator protection with future concepts, as well as examine upcoming changes in industry standards and show how new technology can be applied to meet customers’ aerial jobsite needs while proactively addressing the new standards.

“Genie is among the most influential innovators in the aerial work platform industry who is making tomorrow’s reality happen, and we’re excited to bring their technology to attendees,” said Rich Goldsbury, ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017 chair and president of Bobcat Company and Doosan.

“Sometimes new technologies keep our customers in compliance with what will be mandated on jobsites,” says Marie Engstrom, Genie Product Manager, Terex AWP. “Other times, it’s about making mobile elevating work platform equipment perform at its best. Either way, Genie continues to innovate solutions for making work at height safe and effective.”
