I am the co-founder of SGW Designworks, a product development company that was founded in 2008 with Tasche Streib and Mike Witt. The three of us had worked together in the corporate world, on large design development projects for a fortune 500 companies, and realized that it was very difficult to find qualified businesses to help with product development challenges ranging from initial design to manufacturing planning.

Initially using a local coffee shop in Boise, Idaho as a primary office, we worked hard to develop a reputation for insight in engineering development, and integrity. Word began to spread, and the business matured. SGW Designworks now completes around fifty projects per year, for clients across a wide range of industries. The team continues to grow as well, and the business achieved position 1174 on the 2017 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.

We are still passionate about delivering world-class engineering development capabilities with insight and a high level of integrity. The design and development capabilities of the team have evolved greatly since 2008. In those days, projects primarily focused on the development of mechanisms, enclosures, and small machines for manufacturers.

Today, our team has a combined experience of over 150 years and provides full product design and engineering service to businesses that want to develop the right product and get to market faster. Our development capabilities include mechanical design, predictive analysis, embedded systems development, IoT and smart product development, cloud connectivity, process design, and manufacturing management.
