Who We Are


Our Roots Grow in World Class Service

The concept of Design Systems, Inc. was realized in 1983 – a company with the singular goal of providing World Class industrial engineering solutions, engineering services, and program management services at all levels to our customers. From our humble beginnings of two engineers with a dream, sketching ideas on napkins at a restaurant, decades later with a team of over 300 engineers and professionals based in three countries with projects spanning the globe – we haven’t lost sight of those principles the company was founded upon.
