History of T.H Cock Pty Ltd

T.H.Cock Pty Ltd is one of Queensland's oldest Electrical Contracting companies - established in 1933 by Thomas Harris Cock and operating from their base in Lutwyche. The company holds the No. 8 License issued to Electrical Contractors in Queensland.  The company quickly gained wide acceptance in the domestic and industrial market due to its focus on customer service and quality of work.

In 1960 his son Brian (an Electrical Engineer) joined the company and upon the death of the founder in 1964 assumed the reins as Managing Director.  In 1975 saw the base relocated to larger premises in Lever Street, Albion. The business still operates from this address.

Under the Leadership of Brian Cox the company prospered and expanded its operations.  His innovative advertising and the will to accept new challenges was never more evident that when T.H Cock became the first Queensland Electrical Contractor to indenture a female apprentice.  By the 1980's the company began to focus more on the commercial and industrial sectors of the electrical market and built up skills in the maintenance and installation of large industrial plants and automatic control systems.  Data Cabling and Security Systems also continued to be at the forefront on the companies expansion.

In June 1996 Brian Cox retired from the business and the company is now operated as a subsidiary of Everett-Smith & Co Pty Ltd, under the local mangement with David Martin as Managing Director.  With the new ownership comes the wealth of experience in major contracting now available to T.H Cock.  The interchange of staff and systems between the Queensland and Western Australian operations ensures that both companies will benefit from this unique merging of ideas.  Under the new management the focus will be on the expansion of the company further into the major commercial and industrial contracting while retaining the strong service and maintenance division.

A major factor in all our work is that long-serving, key staff have an intimate knowledge of our client's requirements which ensures satisfaction and builds confidence in our ability to perform to the very highest standards.  T.H Cock believe this excellent foundation and the company's technical, financial and human resources enables them to continue to be a truly major force in the electrical industry in the current millennium.  The company's service record and stability over the past 78 years has encouraged many major organizations to become clients of T.H Cock.
