Executive Director / Owner
Born in 1965 in Nicosia, Cyprus, Mr. Pavlos Psaltis started taking up leadership roles from a young age. He served in the Cypriot Forces and attended the Bristol Polytechnic (now the University of West of England Bristol’s International College) in the United Kingdom in 1985. He specialised as a mechanical engineer for steel-made auto-parts and focused on obtaining an international experience that would bring further innovation later on at the company.
By 1990, he decided to make the bold move to return to Cyprus and take over Tiger Springs, bringing new knowledge in the production process and the local industry.
Such knowledge and expertise were soon put to the test due to changes in the manufacturing process. In 1999, Tiger Springs decided to move from steel-suspension to air-suspension-based parts. This was a crucial decision in the upgrading of the company further by investing in new parts. Mr. Psaltis initiated this process by establishing the first contact with one of Tiger Spring’s most trusted allies to date – Hyva International. Meeting Hyva’s Mr. J. Vaandrager in Alphen aan den Rijn in the Netherlands helped boost Tiger Spring’s grasp of the Cypriot market, giving the company a rather competitive edge.
From that point on, Mr. Psaltis focused on a quest for continually improving, staying up to date with new developments in the industry, and the international markets, as well as developing new techniques that shape the Cypriot auto-parts market. Mr. Psaltis has been regularly participating in several conferences and seminars, both at home and abroad.
