When we work together, we can achieve great things.

When we work together, we can achieve great things.

Jonathan Prince, Director, Caliber Design

We are a small country, but we punch above our weight on the global stage. To compete, New Zealand businesses need to innovate and collaborate; using our collective skill sets to make collective gains.

Caliber Design is an engineering, analysis, and mechanical design consultancy with offices in Auckland, Hamilton, and Christchurch. We do a lot of work in the materials and food handling industry. We help our clients optimise their existing machinery, and develop new machinery, to ensure safe and efficient stock handling.

In this presentation, we’ll share how a business model based on kiwi companies working together works for everyone. “Nanas kitchen to global scale” … when kiwi businesses work together, we can take on the world! We’ll showcase some success stories and let you in on some of the lessons we’ve learnt along the way.


Jonathan has worked from some of New Zealand’s leading design companies, including Tait Communications, Formway, Intercad, and inFact. He has extensive experience in mechanical engineering, as well as sales, business development, and management. Jonathan is passionate about product commercialisation, the design process, and sustainable design and has a genuine desire to help businesses innovate. Some career highlights for Jonathan include being a design authority for the Tait Communications flagship T3000 handheld product range; leading the final design and productionisation of the internationally successful Formway Life Chair; and co-inventing the Windry gumboot dryer which won two Best Design Awards for innovation and sustainability.
