The founder of Gilani Engineering, Ramin ( Ray ) Gilani, 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 2 years of research away from obtaining his PhD he decided that he had studied enough to be able to bridge the knowledge gap identified existing within the automotive industry between the hands on technicians and the engineers.
His first job before even finishing his University studies was testing vehicle parts for Gestamp Hardtech which supplies mainly the German automotive industry such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, and Porsche.
In 2012 he started working as a fully qualified mechanical engineer designing, developing and even building wheelchair accessible vehicles. Within 2 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, Ramin had to leave the office behind and work side by side with the welders, panel beaters and body makers in the factory. By doing so he could report directly to the director where the production line requires optimization. He was promoted to General Manager in 2015. Beside building the products by hand he was investigating the latest vehicles on the market and their ability to be modified into wheelchair accessible. After discussions with the team, The Honda Odyssey was introduced in 2015 and the Kia Sorento was introduced in 2016.
Ramin 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.
