Tony Miller, Chief Designer, at Sugden prefers using the tried and true method of hand drawing designs. Every product is designed at the Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire factory in England. Final designs are computer loaded for processing.
Highly trained technicians individually hand build every Sugden product. The cases, knobs, heat sinks and metal fixtures are also individually machined and fabricated in-house, assisting quality control.
