This summer, the product engineering team was happy to host Madhava Parimi and Farhan Shouby for six weeks of training and workshops in Grand Rapids. Madhava is a lead design engineer and has been with Gill for nearly five years. Farhan is a lead CAE engineer and has been with Gill for over six years. Both are stationed at the Gill offices in Hyderabad, India and provide engineering support for Gill’s programs in North America and abroad.

During their 6-week visit, Farhan and Madhava participated in training workshops with various engineers and interfaced with several departments while still performing their normal day-to-day jobs. They learned about all of the Gill products and manufacturing processes, as well as the Gill Launch Process (GLP) and PLEX. They also spent time in the product engineering test laboratory learning about validation testing.

A sincere thank you to everyone who supported the visit and training. Farhan and Madhava have returned to India armed with the knowledge, expertise, and personal relationships to support future programs successfully. They will be a tremendous help as Gill looks to expand our presence in the Asian markets which hold excellent growth opportunities.
