AMETEK MRO Singapore has appointed Greg Mariotto as director of operations, Singapore.
He will be responsible for production, engineering, purchasing and quality and will be tasked with “driving the facility to be best-in-class from an operational performance perspective”.
Mariotto has more than twenty years’ experience within the aviation MRO sector, and most recently served at Collins Aerospace.
“I am pleased and excited to take on this new role at AMETEK MRO,” said Mariotto. “It is an opportunity to take our processes to the next level from an operational standpoint. Utilising quality management and business systems, such as AS9110, will help us achieve seamless connectivity between our business support functions and operations to benefit our customers.”
Mariotto said he expected there to be a significant focus on the development, implementation and use of lean manufacturing and continuous improvement protocols over the next 12 months.
“My short-term priority will be on increasing our customer satisfaction by expanding our operational MRO footprint and technical expertise with new capabilities that are currently being established in Singapore, including a wheels & brakes facility for bizjets and commercial operators and A350 cargo and galley heaters,” he said. “Successful, on time delivery of each new capability is not only key for our business and long-term sustainability, but also provides an increased depth of local MRO support for our customers who can be assured they will receive a safe, reliable, cost-competitive service with shorter turnaround times.”
AMETEK MRO Singapore’s vice president and general manager David Corish commented: “Greg’s appointment demonstrates our focus on building a highly skilled and experienced senior team. As the diverse Asia Pacific market evolves there are significant opportunities to support operators and OEMs, so ensuring our MRO facilities operate at maximum efficiency is a priority. Greg’s knowledge of process improvement and visual factory principles will help us to streamline our processes, reduce turnaround times and increase our customer satisfaction.”
