General Industrial + Manufacturing

Our integrated team creates high performing spaces and processes for clients in complex industrial markets.

Uniting People and Processes

We help industrial leaders coordinate teams and streamline operations through goal-driven spaces.

Ghafari applies decades of experience from our core industrial and manufacturing markets to help clients across a range of fields, including agricultural equipment, food, aerospace, and consumer goods production. Our broad-based facility and process expertise allows us to improve productivity, decrease the total lifecycle cost, minimize risk, and manage resources. We address these complex operations from the inside out, designing the processes, people, and structure to work as one. This integrated approach reduces time, cost, and stress throughout the course of the project and beyond.

A hub for collaboration and creativity.
