Jean Edouard Handal, Co-Founder UNICO S.A.
After his studies in Industrial Engineering, Jean Edouard Handal started his career managing a textile factory, producing and exporting sports shirts. During this time he increased the company’s production eventually expanding to the manufacturing of trousers for school uniforms.
After Haiti’s catastrophic 2010 earthquake left most of the factory destroyed, Mr Handal turned his focus to other projects. He co-founded a large building material distribution company which quickly became a one-stop shop for NGO and other organizations involved in the country’s reconstruction.
Aside from his building material company, the multitasking young entrepreneur has invested in real estate properties and is also the co-founder of Unico S.A.
Unico is located in the center of Petion-Ville and offers a wide variety of school wear sportswear, work wear and casual wear as well as services such as printing and embroidery. Unico brings Jean Edouard back to his original interest in the textile, garment manufacturing and embroidery world!
