Caliber Design was founded in the wake of two major events that had a profound impact on the New Zealand economy: the global financial crisis and the Canterbury earthquakes.

During this challenging period, many businesses struggled to survive and the resulting uncertainty led to a reluctance to take on permanent staff. This left companies short-staffed and unable to take advantage of opportunities that arose.

However, Jonathan Prince, Caliber’s Founding Director, saw an opportunity in the midst of the chaos. He recognized that businesses needed project-based mechanical engineering resources, delivered on-demand and tailored to their specific needs. This knowledge led to the creation of Caliber in 2015, with a mission to provide exceptional project-based engineering services to businesses throughout New Zealand.

Starting out with five engineers in 2015, Caliber has grown significantly and now boasts a team of over 50 highly skilled professionals. They work on secondment for clients across the country, delivering world-class mechanical engineering solutions. By providing a flexible and responsive approach to engineering services, Caliber has become a trusted partner to businesses across New Zealand.
