"There is always a better solution! Improve simply by asking the right questions and add a pinch of "outside the box" thinking".
The founder of Gilani Engineering, Ramin Gilani known as Ray graduated from "Motorsport Gymnasiet" (The Swedish Institute of Motorsport) in Sweden 2005. He proceeded to Lulea University of technology where he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Automotive System Engineering in 2010 and presented his Master's thesis in Mechanical engineering at Monash University Melbourne in 2012. With only two years of research away from obtaining his PhD Ramin decided that he had studied enough to bridge the existing knowledge gap identified within the automotive industry by being a hands on technician and a highly skilled engineer.
In 2012 he started working as a fully qualified mechanical engineer and designer, developing and even building wheelchair accessible vehicles. Within two years he was promoted to a managing position and was heavily involved in R&D of disability products through the duration of his management.
To completely master all aspects of the products and find room for improvements, Ray had to leave the office behind and work side by side with the welders, panel beaters and body makers in the factory. Now he was able to recognise where optimizations were required in the production lines. Soon after, Ray was promoted to General Manager. Beside building the products by hand he was investigating the latest cars and vans on the market and their ability to be modified into wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAV). After discussions with the team, The Honda Odyssey was introduced in 2015 and the Kia Sorento was introduced in 2016.
Ray is a member of the SAE (Aust), a Registered Professional Engineer in NSW and an Approved Person under NSW RMS Transport Vehicle Modification Scheme for light vehicles.
