About


Swope Design Solutions is a Mechanical Engineering and Product Design firm based in SF specializing in consumer products, medical devices, and robotics. From napkin sketches to high-volume production, we have expertise in all areas of product development.

Process


Our unique process pairs engineers who have a wide breadth of design experience with in-house capabilities and equipment. This enables our engineers to efficiently converge on solutions to our client’s biggest problems. Many firms are too large to rapidly arrive at solutions and others too small to have sufficient in-house capabilities. At SDS, we strike the perfect balance between the two, creating an ideal problem solving environment.

Our Mission


Our mission is to tackle any challenge for our clients, quickly and efficiently, because we know your business depends on solving these challenges.
