History and Beginnings
Pasquale grew up in the agriculture and irrigation world since his parents owned an agricultural pharmaceuticals and equipment business in Canosa di Puglia. The agricultural world had always fascinated him. Growing up, and to diversify from the activities of the family business, Pasquale became involved with the installation and the commercialization of drip irrigation systems. Cosimo was born in Australia from Italian immigrants who emigrated to Adelaide in 1952. His career commenced as a toolmaker and progressed through study to mechanical engineering. Cosimo’s studies eventually introduced him to the world of irrigation and the research & development of micro irrigation products. Pasquale and Cosimo met in 1988 at the International Micro Irrigation Congress held at Albury-Wodonga in Australia. This encounter was the beginning of a working relationship that lasted 16 years before the founding of TECO. The friendship and collaboration between the two partners strengthened and in 2003 they decided to create their own company in Italy with the focus on research & development of micro irrigation products for landscape and agriculture. TECO Srl was founded in 2004, with headquarters in Canosa di Puglia. The first range of products were developed and introduced at EIMA 2005 in Bologna Italy. From that moment onwards new products have been developed year by year and to date TECO has a range of more than 800 products with approximately 200 customers worldwide.
Thanks to TECO’s constant commitment to research & development and manufacture, TECO products are known worldwide for their quality and innovation.
TECO is constantly reviewing and updating its processing capabilities so as to provide its customers with the best service and technical support possible to ensure reliable products and peace of mind.
