More capacity, without hiring

Our engineering capacity at your disposal

Demand for process automation is increasing. Automation houses and integrators are quoting more projects than ever. But most are not increasing their internal engineering headcount because of economic uncertainty. Our team is here to fill the gap. Our team has the experience you need to move your projects forward, without the cost and overhead of hiring new employees. Whether you need additional mechanical engineering capacity to speed up a project, of complete development of EOATs or subsystems, we are here to help. We offer a range of engagement models. SGW Designworks can work in parallel with your team, we can place individuals temporarily on your team, or we can take on complete development execution. Call today to learn more about how we can help. 

Parallel Development

When you need an outside team to design subsystems or partial systems in tandem with your internal team, parallel-path development is a good option. We will work with you to define milestones and collaboration plans to ensure that we deliver the right output, on time and on budget.

Staff Augmentation

Do you just need additional engineering capacity, right now? Our staff augmentation model places our team members on your project team, directed by your project managers. We will work with you to agree on a time commitment, skill set requirement, and capacity level that works for you. We will then dedicate the right resources of ours to your projects. When appropriate, our team members may be able to operate on-site at your facility, although this is typically not necessary.
