Design Office

Design capabilities at SFM have grown and improved with the huge technological advances of the last 20 years and now accommodate the requirements of a wide range of industry sectors.


Whilst a substantial part of design engineering work is focused on the needs of the aerospace industry, the range of sectors served have continued to diversify and the skills of the design team are now applied to many differing sectors of industry. This growth has been facilitated as the SFM Design Office team boasts an impressive range of skills including: pneumatics, hydraulics, and mechanical and electrical design environments.

From conceptual scheming designs right up to fully detailed assembly drawings, the production of original designs to providing an outsourced design service or sometimes simply enhancing a client's work and increasing their capacity by taking on elements in-house - no two customers' requirements are the same thus SFM tailors its service accordingly.


SFM's Designers can either manage design work projects whilst based at our offices via secure electronic data transfer or the outplacement of our design engineers at customers’ premises for longer term project work.
