Hans Christian Ettengruber

Hans Christian Ettengruber
Managing Director, UNITECHNIK, UAE

Born on May 12th, 1957 in Neuwied/Germany  

After finishing university studies with master degrees in both mechanical engineering and business administration in Darmstadt, I started my career with the biggest German plant builder – Mannesmann AG in Moenchengladbach in 1985 as a project manager. The products that were produced in this factory were tube mills, hydraulic presses and powder metallurgy plants.

In 1993, I joined Carl Schenck AG in Darmstadt with their material handling division as head of sales. This division was specialized on Air Cargo handling systems as well as intralogistics for automobile plants. During this time, I had the first contacts with Dubai and our company won a contract to refurbish Hall A at the airport and install a modern ULD handling system. Several contracts followed.

In 2009 I left the company, which was now owned by CTI (Luxembourg) to join Unitechnik/ICM. Unitechnik is specialized in automation of material handling systems and had built already the flower centre and supplied the intralogistics for Emirates Flight catering (EKFC). Since 2009, I am the managing director for Unitechnik in Dubai and responsible for sales and after sales services. Unitechnik also built the biggest automated high bay storage system for frozen products at Dubai Logistics City.
