About CONExpo:

CONEXPO is the world's largest Construction Expo, generally held every 3 years. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 event was postponed and is now being held in March of this year. In 2017, this event had over 2.8 million square feet of exhibit space, 2,800 leading manufacturers and service providers, and 26000 attendees from more than 150 countries.

Purvis Industries is excited to be exhibiting at CONEXPO this year, and we want to share our conveying capabilities with every visitor! We'll be showcasing our miniaturized conveying demo, "Einstein" on the floor, as well as digital presentations on some of our larger projects.

Product and Business Unit specialists from both KMEC and PICOR will be joining members of the Purvis team to be available to explain our combined experience, specialties, and products. We'll also have members of our CapCorp and Precision teams on hand for any belting or contracting needs you may have.

If you are considering attending CONEXPO, please fill out our form at the bottom of this page to request a meeting with our team during the show. You can also be added to our email list for updates from Purvis regarding CONEXPO!

"Purvis for Service" is more than just a motto, it's our way of life. Let us know what we can do for you! We hope to see you at CONEXPO in March!
