Expertise as headhunter for automation technology

Profound Understanding & International Network

Our industry focus equips us with a profound understanding of the segmentation in factory and process automation as well as of the components required to build an automation system. We have a thorough grasp of the automation pyramid levels. Our customers from the automation industry are "technically minded" and require executives with a very good engineering qualification and high entrepreneurial potential.

In addition, there is the "digital footprint" managers need to bring in the course of digital transformation. IIoT, cloud solutions, artificial intelligence and the importance of software are not only buzzwords, but fields of expertise for future executives.

International recruitment and careers with automation companies

Our international network consists of top-level managers – both locals and expats – in almost 60 countries. We are able to find our clients managers also in difficult markets such as Asia (e.g. China, Japan, Korea, SEA and India), Latin America (e.g. Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and the Andean countries) and Russia / CIS and Eastern Europe.

We have been able to successfully place a high number of executives in our clients' subsidiaries, which also expanded our active network of automation technology managers and "eTec friends" in the respective markets even further.

Trade Fairs

For our clients and partners, we are also present at the most important specialist trade fairs in automation technology. The most important trade fair for our clients and us is the HMI in Hannover (Germany), as it is the largest industrial fair for automation technology. Regarding the segment of factory automation, we also meet our clients at the SPS fair in Nuremberg (Germany). However, we also take part in a range of smaller fairs such as the MOTEK (Stuttgart), automatica (Munich) or the "all about automation" fairs throughout Germany.

We have been on site for our clients at the ACHEMA in Frankfurt, the leading trade fair for process automation, for many years.  Other fairs in the process automation that we frequent are, amongst others, MEORGA (regional), analytica (Munich) and Process Automation (formerly Interkama).


To enable an industry get-together for decision-makers in automation technology, eTec has been hosting the "Early Bird Breakfast" as part of the SPS fair since 2008. Since 2012, we have been organizing this event in cooperation with SPS Magazine, Europe's largest trade journal for automation technology. Over and over again, our networking in automation technology enables us to recruit C-level managers from market-leading companies as our keynote speakers.

Therefore, our "Early Bird Breakfast" has become one of the leading networking events in the automation industry. You can learn more in our Spotlights.
