EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, will be participating in Student Day at MODEX® 2020 as a designated tour guide, leading a group of students interested in pursuing a career in the supply chain industry and introducing them to representatives of exhibiting companies who are seeking new talent. The Material Handling Industry (MHI), in partnership with the Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc.

EnerSys Sales Manager, Jarrod Smith, will serve as the EnerSys ambassador who will lead one of this year’s Student Day tours. Jarrod joined EnerSys in June 2008 and has more than 20 years of experience in the material handling industry. As a designated tour guide, Jarrod will be responsible for initiating introductions with onsite exhibitors, serving as a resource for fielding student questions and offering insight on career opportunities within the industry.
