Our founders and the evolution of their business

In 1963, Bill and Gayle Cook created a small company that manufactured three simple medical devices used to treat patients in less invasive ways than common surgical techniques of the time.

Cook Group was created to provide support and oversight to the Cook companies, which remain family owned.
