In 1988, Paul Ghotra embarked on his manufacturing engineering journey when he moved to Vancouver, Canada. He commenced his career in one of British Columbia's prominent hi-tech companies, which, over fifteen years, grew from a modest 10-employee startup to a formidable force with 5000 employees. This transformative experience fueled his unwavering commitment to growth and overcoming business challenges.
Paul's journey into engineering had deep roots in his childhood, inspired by his father's strong desire to see him become an engineering trailblazer. Tragically, his father passed away when Paul was still a young boy. However, this loss became the catalyst for a lifelong mission to fulfill his father's engineering dreams. He pursued his education at a prestigious technical institute, specializing in precision mechanics, instrumentation, and manufacturing engineering.
Two decades ago, Paul founded CIMTech Green Energy, marking the initiation of a remarkable chapter in his career. Since this significant milestone, he has played a pivotal role in guiding engineers from high-tech companies through the intricacies of Design for Manufacturability (DFM) processes. The goal is to foster economically sound design principles. Understanding that time is a critical cost factor, the focus is not just on minimizing manufacturing time but also optimizing development time to expedite products to market.
Throughout his career, Paul has actively participated in new product development cycles, collaborating with engineers from high-tech firms to enhance part designs for manufacturability. From the earliest proof-of-concept stages to scaled production, his wealth of experience has provided invaluable insights into cost reduction strategies during the initial phases of the design process.
