Product Design Company

Manufacturing Heritage

Designing the Right Product – Faster.

As one of the top Product Design Companies in the US, businesses of all types look to us to enhance product development outcomes. As our product design portfolio shows, our development engineers work on projects in a wide range of industries. Recent product design projects include sporting goods design, mobile equipment engineering, consumer product development, firearms engineering, industrial product design, home appliance development, smart device engineering, IoT development, and industrial product engineering. Our heritage in manufacturing means that our product design engineers have the insight to consider the realities of production throughout the product design process. The result is a final product design that transitions easily into production.

All of our projects begin with a conversation. Contact Us today, and we will work together to define a product design plan to design the right product – faster.


Established businesses and funded startups hire SGW Designworks to design and engineer new products. Our projects often include mechanical design, embedded electronics development, industrial design, PCBA design and layout, firmware development, complex mechanism design, enclosure development, product prototypes, and manufacturing engagement. The companies we work with are pioneers that hire us to develop products that range from innovative tactical equipment to specialty electronics. Clinets of SGW Designworks are manufacturing products all over the world, including the US, China, Malaysia, India, and Mexico.


The product design and prototype development process can be complex. We use a proven product development process, typically starting with a Phase 0 project to answer initial questions about the project that will define all subsequent development phases. Phase 0 projects result in a clear path forward. Prototyping is fundamental to our development approach. We apply Lean Principles to development project similar to those featured in The Lean Startup by Eric Ries, which means every prototype serves a purpose and provides critical findings for iterative development. We employ cutting edge design and development tools, like Virtual Reality Prototyping.


As your product development company, we act as the industrial design and new product engineering department that you can rely on for complete new product design. Our development team carries projects from the early phases of feasibility study and specification development, through concept development, industrial design, initial engineering, design iteration, prototype development, through to the later stages of design finalization, design for manufacturer, and manufacturer engagement. From concept design through design for manufacturing, including manufacturing management, we have the experience to guide you.
