With over 25 years’ experience in product design and development Michael Gulak has pioneered the data storage industry with his award winning disc array subsystems and data storage solutions in the early 1990’s. During the mid-1990’s, he was one of the first in Canada to start developing products in 3D, using AutoCAD and Solidworks. In the late 1990’s, he was instrumental in the design and development of the first 2000 disk robotic CD library manufactured by Dynatek Automation Systems. In 2001, he joined D&R electronics and within a few years developed a complete line of mobile computing, sound, lighting, storage and mounting products for police and emergency vehicles. These products included laptop mounts, weapons storage and motorized LED warning signs that are currently used by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO). Recently he has completed the cabinet design of a large outdoor DVD rental machine and is currently working on an automated candy vending machine for a well-known Canadian company.
