In his role as Operations and Production Manager at DARI, Gilbert is responsible for ensuring the smooth running of the factory. Having graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering, Gilbert has always been fascinated by the craftsmanship and effort that goes into creating a piece of furniture. His role is a diverse one, which sees him involved at every stage of the product lifecycle – from the initial product conception to the delivery and installation.
He is also responsible for keeping the facility in good shape, ensuring that machinery is in perfect condition, managing factory employees, sourcing materials and fulfilling client orders. When not working, Gilbert enjoys DIY work, travelling and keeping up to date with motorsport events.
The manufacturing process starts with the automatic syncing of the final design and measurements selected and agreed upon with you, with the software that automates the running of the production line. Each item has a unique identifying code that is assigned to every piece of every item in an order. This ensures that parts are correctly manufactured, organised, stored, and finally assembled into the complete kitchen, wardrobe, or living units, without any errors. This unique identifying number also assists with the replacement of panels if required at a later date.
