About us

SGS Engineering was established in 2003 commencing with manufacturing gas struts that could be built to an exacting standard, value for money and distributed quickly over the internet. Instead of waiting weeks for an imported gas strut, SGS customers expect their strut delivered next day and to specification. Although our product ranges have grown over the years, the underlying principle has stayed the same; high quality products, delivered quickly with an excellent UK based customer service team.

When you order with SGS Engineering, you’ll will receive a high-quality product at great value for money. SGS branded products go through the most stringent of quality and performance checks. We now stock a vast range of branded power tools including Milwaukee, DeWalt, Kress, Evolution and Bosch and we have extended our range of garden and outdoor equipment to include Stiga, Mountfield, Einhell, Karcher, as well as our own brand garden equipment which we are expanding each season.

Designed and Manufactured by SGS

SGS design and produce NitroLift gas struts in our UK manufacturing facility based in Derby. We’re the leading manufacturer of gas struts in the UK and that’s due in no small part to our commitment to high quality products, delivered quickly and with unparalleled customer support. With our experience in precision engineering our own product range has grown over the years from just car gas struts. We now supply gas struts for several uses, beds, outdoor bars. kitchens, horse trailers, and mobile homes/caravans. In fact, anything that requires a slow closing/opening device which can be pressurised here at SGS. We even now stock Tesla gas struts and electronic struts and also now sell dampeners as we move with the times.

Increasing our range of own-brand products means we can closely control the supply and manufacturing process, enabling us to offer a quality range of products at consistently low prices. When you buy SGS garage equipment such as a SGS trolley jack, tool box, tool chest, compressor, generator - you can expect your product to conform to the highest performance, safety and quality standards. We’re constantly testing and improving our range with the help of our dedicated Derby based R&D team.
