Our Roots


Founded in 1987 by leading horticulturalist John Cooley, Proptek was born out of a desire to create the best possible growing containers for plants. 

After years of running his own commercial nurseries, John Cooley’s aim was simple: 
Create long-lasting, quality products that give long term financial benefits to commercial nurseries by enabling growers to grow better plants that give greater yields with lower cost inputs and compatability with mechanisation where possible. 

After extensive research and development, he began manufacturing his own injection molded plastic trays which fellow nursery operators became interested in and for the last 30 years, John has specialized in tray and pot production.

By using state of the art technology and a team of designers whose sole purpose is to create market leading propagation trays through innovation and expertise, Proptek is now revolutionizing the horticultural industry by developing ground-breaking products that make a real difference to growers all over the world.

“Proptek’s roots are firmly embedded in horticulture.”
