About us

Peter Cook Ltd is a family run company that was established in 1932 by the late Peter Cook. Our Factory is based on the outskirts of Glasgow and is situated near all major motorway links, allowing us to operate nationwide.

Specialises in manufacturing timber canopies

Since 1932, Peter Cook Ltd has specialised in the manufacturing of timber canopies and bespoke timber products for the new build housing market. However, with the introduction of Glass Reinforced Plastic commonly known as GRP, it has helped the company to grow into one of the UK's leading manufactures of Timber and GRP Canopies within the new build housing market.

Our success is also reflected in our client base, as this comprises of several of the top 20 housebuilders within the UK.

We believe this is due to our willingness to adapt to market trends, over the years we have seen several changes to the market place and have evolved the company to keep up with these trends.

The biggest change we have experienced has been the introduction of Glass Reinforced Plastic know as GRP. Glass Reinforced Plastic can also be referred to as fibreglass, composite plastic and FRP has helped changed how we manufacture products for the new build housing market.

Bespoke timber products

GRP is a composite made from resin and glass, which results in a strong lightweight product. Due to its resistance to tension, it means that GRP’s strength is equal to or greater than its equivalent steel profile. GRP can be used for a multitude of applications as it is extremely adaptable and versatile. Due to this Fibreglass has many properties which can't be found in everyday building or repair materials.

Since the introduction of GRP, it has allowed to us to expand our product range and we are now able to offer an extensive range of products such as GRP Bay Windows, Posts, bracket’s, Dormers, Coping and Cornice. It also made helped in the way we manufacture bespoke items for clients and has allowed us to carry out various restoration products due to the moulding process involved with glass-reinforced plastic. In addition to this, it has also helped us break into the commercial market where we have been involved in numerous projects like the Glasgow Riverside Museum back in 2011.
