OUR CLIENTS

Your Product Development Company.

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 machine design partner since 2008. We serve a wide range of industries and markets. Our product design and engineering services include industrial design, mechanical engineering, electronics design, and embedded systems engineering throughout the full product development cycle. We apply Lean Startup principles, which means frequent, focused prototyping and iterations throughout the product development. 

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

Cutting-edge tech.

We  apply cutting edge technologies to make the product design and engineering process more efficient. On many projects, we are able to reduce the number of physical prototype iterations needed by building VR prototypes. Our engineers can load 3D models of your product or machine 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 integrated Industrial Design, Mechanical Design, Embedded Systems Development, and Manufacturing Expertise in-house.  We are able to provide complete, turnkey designs for machines and products in just about any market. We run mechanical engineering in parallel with electronics development and industrial design, applying manufacturing insight throughout development.

Industry insight.

Our team has deep experience in a wide variety of industries. We apply our experience from aerospace product engineering, heavy manufacturing, consumer product design, industrial product development, process engineering, and connected device development to all of the projects we work on. This means that our team produces ideas and approaches that companies with a constrained view would not have come up with.

“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 EXPERTISE

INDUSTRIAL
DESIGN

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

PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT

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.

PRODUCT ENGINEERING

Our heritage in manufacturing means that our product designers and engineers have the insight to apply the realities of production and sourcing throughout the product design process.

MANUFACTURING MANAGEMENT

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.
