Founder and CEO of automation technology provider Isra Vision, Enis Ersü is set to retire from his position at the end of June 2021 after 36 years with the company.

While working as a research associate, Mr Ersü founded Isra Vision as a spin-off from the Technical University (TU) of Darmstadt.

ISRA (intelligent systems, robots and automation) was one of the first German start-ups with a strategic business case focused on combining machine vision and robotics and automation technology.

After ten years, the company took a decisive step and turned its focus exclusively on the “electronic eye.”

In 2000, Isra Vision was listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Subsequently, Isra Vision was one of the few companies that survived the collapse of the “New Market”.

Isra Vision has more than 850 employees at 25 sites in more than 15 countries reported of about €150 million prior to the pandemic.

Enis Ersü has led the company with a strategy based on customer-oriented innovation, while also fostering organic and external growth.

Diversifying its business across more than nine different sectors was just as significant as the strategic acquisition of eleven companies, with some of these focusing on different target industries.

Mr Ersü said: “For over 36 years, I have enjoyed the privilege of working with an outstanding team.

“I am very grateful to all of my employees, colleagues, customers, and partners who accompanied me on this exciting journey and who put their weight behind strategic measures and bold decisions.”

In his next stage of life, he intends to support young technology companies with his expertise in a consulting capacity.
