Managing director and founder
A technology enthusiast from an early age, Dietmar Ernst studied mechanical engineering, specializing in production technology, at RWTH Aachen University. His professional career began as a research assistant at the RWTH's machine tool laboratory. Challenging research projects and intensive industrial contacts shaped his knowledge acquisition and a fundamentally interdisciplinary way of thinking. The co-founding of a spin-off company from the university was the logical step to implement his skills in an entrepreneurial way. After ten years in the management of this company, the time was ripe to found esco as his own company together with Marion Süßmilch as commercial partner.
