What some of our clients have to say

“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.”


“SGW is an amazing company with the flexibility we require for innovation. 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

“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 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.”

Preston Lewis, Co-founder & CCO, BlackBox VR

“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

“As the patent owner and inventor of the SiPsHitchTM system, I would like to congratulate SGW in achieving an amazing result which exceeded our expectations.

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. I’m not sure if there is any product idea, concept or project that this team could not take on and achieve the same successes that I have experienced.”

Rod Gray, Director & VP, Aero Specialties
