Founded In 1966
Tony Cook Ltd was founded by Mr Tony Cook over 50 years ago as agricultural contractors, before his wife and son soon joined the business. Operating from Burstwick, near Hull. The Burstwick store opened in 1986 to complement the agricultural and plant hire business operating from there, whilst the purchase of the garden centre in 1998, provided the ideal opportunity to diversify, bringing with it the opportunity to expand the, by now, well established fencing business and to build an engineering workshop where the company’s own vehicles are maintained.
The Tony Cook Group
There are several parts to the business; fencing, landscaping, automations, joiner’s workshop, Skirlaugh Garden & Aquatic Centre and allotments which are all run from the garden centre premises and offices based at Hull Road, Skirlaugh, along with the plant & machinery hire and septic tanks. Based next door, Willow Pastures Country Park is a luxury holiday park set in peaceful parkland, and at Burstwick, the ‘One Stop’ Country Store continues to supply the local area with agricultural and DIY products.
Mr Vanston Cook now steers the business, as Managing Director and Mrs Sue Cook remains an active director. The Tony Cook Group employs a wide range of knowledgeable and talented people across the diverse aspects of the company. Both sites, Skirlaugh and Burstwick, are open 7 days a week. This means that there is always someone on hand to give friendly, helpful and professional advice – your enquiries are always dealt with promptly and efficiently.
