About us

SDE Technology has over 50 years’ experience using the very best in engineering practices.

SDE Technology is one of the largest manufacturers of pressings and assemblies in the UK.  Based on the outskirts of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, our modern, purpose-built factory is within easy access to the motorway network. All aspects of presswork are undertaken, including hydraulic deep draw presswork.

From a small local pressing company established fifty years ago, Salop Design and Engineering has grown to become an established manufacturer in the metal forming industry. By embracing the new HFQ® Technology the company now has a revolutionary new tool at its disposal.

SDE Technology is a company comprised of three operating divisions:

SDE Lightweight Engineering is dedicated to the design, development and manufacture of lightweighting solutions for automotive, aerospace and other industrial and consumer sectors. We offer a complete engineering service from concept through to production.

SDE Powder Coating & Surface Technologies, as the name suggests, provides a range of surface finishing technologies for different types of metals.

SDE Logistics including Salop Haulage has grown out of the other two divisions as the vehicle for delivering finished products to customers. The logistics arm of SDE operates under the name Salop Haulage.
