Who We Are


SDM Research & Engineering is a firm that specializes in product innovation and creative engineering. SDM’s expertise is diverse, ranging from turbomachinery and other related aerospace/aeronautical and energy production fields to high-performance sealing technologies and biomedical device design. With our advanced testing capabilities, and our skilled team of CAE engineers, we are capable of serving the corporate, and research industries.

With our committed and experienced engineering staff and well-equipped technical facilities, we serve a variety of customers. Our clients vary from government agencies in Turkey to Multi-national corporations and firms headquartered in North America and the Far East.

SDM’s personnel and business volume have been constantly and significantly growing since the company’s founding in 2010. The company’s primary engineering operations are currently located in Teknopark Istanbul, a brand new facility in Pendik, Turkey. SDM also built and operates a state-of-the-art 300m2 multi-purpose indoor testing facility, primarily dedicated to turbine related testing. SDM is also partnered with near-by Sabancı University. This partnership provides SDM with additional testing capabilities, as well as valuable intellectual resources.

SDM also has a network of advisors in various universities besides Sabancı, notably Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY USA. Many of these advisors have previously been employed by firms such as General Electric, and the Ford Motor Company, and can be directly involved in any projects should the need arise.

In addition to its multi-disciplined R&D personnel, the owners of the firm personally have extensive research and application experience in turbomachinery and sealing technology, as well as in energy production. This leads to a firm that operates without losing sight of its true objective – innovation through engineering.
