Our Journey

1997: The Foundation

Dave Cook Engineering was established as a family business with a vision to represent Bercomex, the world’s leading manufacturer of machinery for the cut flower industry, within the UK and Ireland. Our mission was simple: to provide top-tier machinery and service, ensuring our customers' operations were efficient and productive.

Our portfolio grew with the addition of Terra International, specializing in sleeving machines for flowers and pot plants. This expansion not only broadened our machinery range but also our geographical reach into mainland Europe and America, offering sales and service support.

2010-2024: Embracing Automation

The period from 2010 to 2024 marked a significant shift towards large-scale automation projects within the Horti sector. Our focus on improving efficiency through advanced machinery and tailored engineering solutions became the cornerstone of our services.
