Our production facilities meet the diverse needs of our customers’ requirements, with most of our products being produced from coiled strip, allowing for rapid production rates and even keener product pricing. Our CNC production presses operate up to 250 tonnes pressing capacity, and with electronic feeds, can deliver fast set-ups, rapid product availability, whilst meeting repeatable quality standards.
In-house laser cutting and punching capabilities allows Cooke Brothers to provide its customers with a comprehensive and flexible service, which includes:
- Small one-off production batches, including single product prototyping
- Minimal, and often zero, tooling costs
- Rapid design changes
- Low cost and low ‘single piece’ prices

AGA SS Bracket
When AGA Rangemaster were looking to redevelop their cast iron cooker lid hinge to an adjustable easy fit hinge assembly, they selected Cooke Brothers as their development partners. The component shown allows the alignment adjusters on the hinge body to be unlocked, rotated, and relocked by service and installation engineers with a high degree of ease, all whilst observing the alignment of the lid on the cooker surface.
Washing machine hinges are a challenging product to white goods manufacturers. They not only have to give lifetime performance on opening and closing the washing machine door, but also cope with heavy wet clothing being draped over the door, and potentially the user leaning on the door whilst loading and unloading. The hinge shown, produced by Cooke Brothers, met these exacting criteria with flying colours.
MEM Single Plate
Metal Clad switch and socket plates continue to have a place in the industrial marketplace. Whilst the external designs are produced a limited range of sizes, the internal configuration has to cope with a myriad of styles for both power, switching, and IT components. Cooke Brothers produced these products with quick change tooling to allow flexible batch production followed by Kanban weekly supplies.
When office furniture manufacturer Flexiform wanted to have a concealed cable tray system with integral hinges and remote actuator arm opening, their technical department worked with Cooke Brothers on the design and supply of the multilink hinge shown. The hinge additionally incorporated keyhole shaped slots to provide easy assembly of the upper work surface.
