Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument a Designatronics company
Established in 1950, Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument (SDP/SI) is the company engineers and OEMs depend on for high-quality components, subassemblies, and engineering expertise. As a company founded and managed by engineers we understand and respond to the developing needs of our customers better than anyone. Over 100,000 components are available off-the-shelf for fast turnaround. When a standard part won’t meet your requirements we can provide alternative solutions through custom design and manufacturing. Our engineering and manufacturing teams will partner with you throughout the entire process. Located in New York, SDP/SI is remaining on Long Island, moving to a brand new state-of-the-art production and manufacturing facility in early 2017. By providing design, development, manufacturing, assembly, and testing in one location we can ensure the end product will meet your expectations. For prototype and small to large production runs you can rely on SDP/SI.
High Volume Precision Gear Production We manufacture precision gears, custom gearboxes, differentials, and planetary gearheads.
State-of-the-art gear production facility has increased capacity and offers new capabilities.
