About Us


SGS Engineering was established in 2003 when director Andy spotted a gap in the market for UK manufactured gas struts that could be built to an exacting standard and distributed quickly over the internet. Instead of waiting weeks for an imported gas strut, SGS customers are to expect their strut delivered next day. 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.


From humble beginnings the company has grown and grown, now spanning four sites in Derby, with a fifth site due to begin construction this year. When you order with SGS Engineering, you’ll only ever receive a high quality product. SGS branded products go through the most stringent of quality and performance checks. We only ever stock brands we love and trust.


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, but our eye for quality has never faltered.


Increasing our range of own-brand products meant we could closely control the supply and manufacturing process, enabling us to offer a quality range of products at consistently low prices. When you buy an SGS trolley jack,tool box, tool chest, compressor, generator or gas strut - 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.
