About Us

Dobbie Engineers provide mechanical engineering studies, detailed design, site inspection and project management services.  Much of our design work is for the major process industries (pulp & paper, dairy) or for the energy industries (coal, geothermal, hydro).  The balance is equipment design (pressure vessels, piping and cranes), building services (hotels, hospitals) or investigations.


Jim Dobbie established Dobbie Engineers in 1990, and the firm has now been delivering results to New Zealand industries for over 25 years.  We operate from offices in Rotorua and Auckland.


Please refer to our news page for our news and career opportunities.

Our permanent staff of sixteen includes professional engineers, graduate mechanical engineers, engineering designers and CAD designers.  Our staff includes a Worksafe approved Piping Design Verifier.


At Dobbie Engineers we take pride in the high calibre of our staff.  Our engineers combine international experience with local knowledge, which enables us to challenge traditional views and offer practical solutions for our clients.
