MRO Management

Dornier Technology seeks growth with appointment of Joseph Espiritu as COO

Dornier Technology has appointed Joseph Espiritu as chief operating officer.

The Philippines-headquartered MRO company said Espiritu’s expertise would enable business growth “by providing tailored solutions for airlines and air operators as the commercial aviation market recovers”.

Espiritu is an industry veteran with more than 18 years of experience including more than a decade in management and senior roles.

He was previously deputy general manager and vice-president of operations at Cebu Pacific Air’s aircraft maintenance organisation Aviation Partnership Philippines (APLUS).

Espiritu has also worked in senior positions at Lufthansa Technik Philippines, handling heavy maintenance for Lufthansa Group airlines and other foreign airlines.

“I am excited about the opportunity to bring my knowledge, skills and expertise to Dornier Technology, an MRO organisation that is expanding its customer base across the Asia region at a time when the commercial aviation industry is recovering,” said Espiritu.

“I see a lot of potential for Dornier Technology, because the aviation industry is now growing and the Philippines has skilled and qualified maintenance engineers and technicians. I believe my knowledge in the MRO sector allows me to contribute in terms of developing new capabilities for the company which is being positioned as a ‘centre of excellence’ for maintenance of narrowbodies such as Airbus A320 family and Boeing 737 family aircraft as well as a ‘centre of excellence’ for maintenance for turboprops such as ATR 42/72 and De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Dash 8 series.”

Espiritu said Dornier was able to tailor maintenance solutions to meet different customers’ needs. “We understand the importance of operational costs, so we will adjust our maintenance fees based on just what you need, while not compromising on the quality,” he said. “And since our services can be customised and individually priced, our pricing is competitive, and that gives us an edge over our competitors.”
