IAM Robotics Cancels Participation at MODEX 2020
Exhibit Booth Remains Open
Tuesday, March 10, 2020
PITTSBURGH, MARCH 9, 2020 – IAM Robotics has canceled its participation at MODEX 2020 this week in the interest of its employees and others due to concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19).
MODEX remains one of the year’s best opportunities to engage with current and potential customers, suppliers, peers, and the media. The IAM Robotics exhibit will remain on display at booth 9204. The company will not have staff available in person, but it is committed to having sales and support representatives available remotely during the event.
The company’s latest innovation is an autonomous mobile conveyor transport called Bolt™. To see this robot in action, MODEX attendees may visit the TREW exhibit at booth 9602.
“The decision to withdraw from MODEX was a difficult one,” said Tom Galluzzo, IAM Robotics founder and CEO. “Safety is our top priority, and nothing is more important than the well-being of our team.”
IAM Robotics based its decision after a thorough review of information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the company continues to closely monitor the ongoing public health risk of COVID-19. “I want to reassure our customers, suppliers, and all friends of the company that we are in control and have a plan to deal with any uncertainties that lie ahead,” Dr. Galluzzo said.
