A Product Development Company.

Businesses Hire Us to Design the Right Product – Faster.

We are a product development company located in beautiful Boise Idaho, but we work with clients all over the United States in the development of innovative new products, equipment, and systems. Businesses have trusted us as their product design and R&D development partner since 2008, serving a wide range of industries and markets. Our product design services include turnkey product development, including industrial design, mechanical development, electronics design, and embedded systems throughout the full product development cycle. We apply Lean Startup principles, which means frequent, focused prototyping and iterations throughout development. 

“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, Medtronic.

Faster Development with Experienced Product Design Engineers.

Early and frequent validation of feature set, function, and manufacture-ability is critical for a successful product development project. Using rapid “Build-Test-Learn” cycles through phased development, we identify high-risk elements of a system, product concept, or business, and focus engineering efforts there first. This approach provides faster development timelines, with multiple opportunities to pivot or revise the product based on test findings. The result is a higher likelihood of staying ahead of your competition; introducing new or next-gen products faster when the stakes are high.

Our Team Is Your Competitive Advantage.

Our product design engineering team is the reason clients count on us and keep coming back. With backgrounds including machine design, mechatronics, programming, manufacturing, fine art, and fabrication, we are able to provide full product engineering and equipment design capabilities across many markets, ranging from precision medical devices to industrial equipment. Our industrial designers are able to tackle a wide range of development projects, applying insight gained from work across many industries to your development project.

“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.

We Are Your Product Development Company.

Our clients do amazing things. Some are pioneers in the tech world, while others are century-old companies, with rock-solid product lines. Some are high-potential startups, while others are Fortune 500 company elites. All of them have recognized that developing and launching successful new products is critical to stay ahead of their competition. Here are some of the businesses we have teamed with recently. Are you next?

Our Product Development Process Sets Us Apart.

Each development project we work on is unique. But most include a combination of concept design, industrial design, product prototyping, final product design, design for manufacture (DFM), and manufacturer engagement, following this project structure. We apply unique development tools like Phase 0 projects and virtual reality prototypes to achieve the best possible outcomes. Some recent projects are shown below, at various stages of development.

“Even though SGW Designworks 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 Ramsey, VP Operations, Lifoam Industries
