A Product Development Company.

SGW Designworks is a product development company located in beautiful Boise Idaho. Our team works with companies all over the United States. We develop innovative new products, equipment, and systems for our clients. Businesses have trusted us as their product design and machine design partner since 2008. Our product design and engineering services include industrial design, mechanical engineering, electronics design, and embedded systems engineering throughout the full product development cycle. The process we use includes Lean Startup principles to develop the right product faster.

Three things set us apart from other product development and engineering companies:

Cutting-edge tech.

We use new technologies to make the product development process more efficient. On many projects, we reduce the number of product prototypes needed by building Virtual Reality prototypes. Our engineers can load 3D models of your product into an Oculus Quest headset, and send it to you for review. Clients even use our VR headsets at trade shows to test product designs with real customers.

Our capabilities.

Our team is truly cross-functional. We have our own Industrial Design, Mechanical Design, Embedded Systems Development, and Manufacturing Expertise in-house.  Companies hire us to create complete designs for machines and products in just about any market. Mechanical engineering runs in parallel with electronics development and industrial design. This means projects run efficiently.

Industry insight.

The product development team st SGW Designworks has experience in many different industries. We apply knowledge from aerospace, consumer products, enterprise electronics, industrial systems, and IoT to all of the projects we work on. This leads to ideas and approaches that other product development firms not have come up with. Get in touch to see how we would approach your project.

“SGW is an amazing company with the flexibility we require for innovation. We can contact SGW any time and get them to work on adjustments to previous projects. They have also assisted us in developing our designs for a new innovative product that will be launched very soon in tactical operations. Thanks to the team at SGW.”

– Jason Semple, Co-Owner, Advanced Accuracy Solutions

“Working with SGW has been a pleasure. We think this because they truly have a passion for what they do and that is clearly visible in their work. We look forward to working with SGW as a team member in the future.”

– John Meyer, President, Correct Cut

“What I found valuable about working with SGW was their approach to development. In initial brain storming sessions, the team came together with me so that they could understand my goals and constraints. Then in a couple of weeks the team presented various options for development. As the project progressed, design review sessions were very helpful as a way to assure me that things were on track, and that the SGW team was there to help mitigate my anxiety as well as the risks of developing a new product.”

– Tim Fulton, Founder, Ramper Innovations

“Even though SGW Designerworks is in Boise and the project was in Baltimore, I selected SGW because these guys are good and they know the molded foam process, the foundry process, instrumentation, and design of experiments. They are a really talented & creative group of engineers”

– Barry Ramsay, VP Operations, Lifoam Industries

“These guys get it. They are a rare blend of creative and technical talent. Honest, flexible, fun to work with and incredibly competent. As a designer, they make me look good, bringing my ideas to life through their insight and experience.”

– John Larkin, President, Machine-Language.

“Prior to selecting SGW for this project, several other development companies were approached and analyzed. The thing that stood out the most and basically sealed the deal for us was the instant understanding of the product and how it would operate in our industry. The complete team at SGW have individual skillsets that work together to create a ‘can do’ operation at the same time being mindful of budgets and commercial cost constraints.”

– Rod Gray, Director & VP, Aero Specialties

“SGW Designworks was instrumental in making our product a reality. We knew what we wanted our product to be, but we needed to take it from a concept to reality. SGW’s iterative and collaborative approach worked really well for development of the system hardware, which allowed our internal team to focus on the software side of the project and on the business. We’re looking forward to our next project with SGW Designworks.”

– Preston Lewis, Co-founder & CCO, BlackBox VR

“I just wanted to tell you guys how grateful I am for helping make this happen for us. SGW has definitely lived up to my expectations and created an excellent product. I appreciate all the hard work!”

– Brian Brooke, Owner, Brooke Aero Tools

“The team at SGW Designworks was able to identify and test multiple solutions to a complex development challenge in a short period of time, then carry those findings over to a full development effort. This had a real impact on the speed of our development project.”

– Calvin Allen, Senior Program Manager, Major US Medical Device Company



Our team approaches industrial design and aesthetic definition with the context of function and manufacturability. We create beautiful and pragmatic designs for the products we develop.


Every prototype is developed for a specific reason. Some are intended to validate functionality and design features. Others serve to communicate design intent to stake holders or test the market.


Our heritage in manufacturing. That means that our product designers and engineers have the insight to other product development firms don’t. This means fewer surprises in the late stages of development.


Ramping up production presents some unique challenges. Our team helps you select the right contract manufacturer, then set up and manage the supply chain so you can focus on selling.
