We are a family owned business with origins dating back over 30 years in agricultural parts supply.
Growing up on the family sheep farm in Moorooduc, founder Steve Wells has spent his life working in the farm machinery world, starting out in a small farm machinery business in Mornington (Vic) (Patons Farm Machinery), where he trained in spare parts before moving to working for Silvan pumps and Sprays (1989), in 1997 Steve made the move to invest in his future by investing in his own company in Lilydale (Rural Farm Equipment) where he made his home for the next 17 Years.
Over the years Steve realized there was a need for quality fast back up service that could be best offered by the use of internet, with his background knowledge, combined with a desire to build for family and support farming Steve launched www.theco-op.com.au in 2019.
The farming community has always had a requirement to source parts, fast, easily and reliably. The spray equipment field has, over this time, proven to be a major source of frustration for farmers to be able to get what they want, when they want it, so we've elected to place an emphasis on the spray equipment as a strong point in building this webstore.
