Jobe Valves Ltd specializes in the design and manufacture of float-operated water valves. Originally these valves were developed for high-flow installations for drinking water troughs on dairy farms. While still mainly used in agriculture, Jobe Valves can now also be found in many light industrial and process installations.
Founded in Matamata, New Zealand in 1967 by Jim Jobe, the company is still family owned and is now operated by the founder’s sons, David and Robin. Although New Zealand remains a significant market, the majority of Jobe Valves production is exported. The product is marketed through distributors in Australia, North America, the United Kingdom and Ireland. New outlets are also being explored and developed throughout Europe, South America, Africa and Asia.
