Martin Palmer
General Manager, SICK FZE, UAE


Martin is a UK national brought up in Southern Africa but now living in the UAE since 2005. He began his career in the industrial gases sector as an applications engineer and later evolved into the operational management of a regional distributorship for a blue-chip international gas manufacturer.

On moving to Dubai from Africa, Martin joined a leading local 3rd party logistics provider where he held several roles, including Business Sector Manager, Contract Logistics Manager and General Manager (Contract Logistics and Transport). Then in 2010 he joined his present company, SICK FZE, also in Dubai. SICK AG, a German headquartered but globally operating sensor manufacturer, is named after their founder Dr. Erwin Sick, who was an opto-electronics engineer and inventor. At SICK FZE, based in the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Martin was initially in charge of the business verticals Factory & Logistics Automation, before later assuming the General Manager position where today he is responsible for the entire SICK sensor business across the Middle East.

The focus of SICK FZE is on growing regional sales and support of the sensor products, services and systems portfolio that SICK has to offer, especially in the local logistics industry where such applications as track & trace, localisation, collision avoidance systems, safety solutions and volumetric/dimensioning analysis are increasingly important.
