Andrew Cotterill

Managing Director

I was born and brought up on our family farm in Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield. With farming in my blood I spent most of my school holidays driving tractors and feeding pigs. When I left school in 1986 I set up Cotterill Contractors offering agricultural contracting and drainage services to farmers in my area. As the business grew, so did our offering which extended into sewage treatment installations, concreting and farm building construction.

I quickly realised that finding good reliable suppliers for land drainage products was very difficult. In 1996 I bought my first lorry load of drainage for our own use and stock. Within a fortnight that first load had vanished and half of it had gone out to other farmers around us for their own use. At this point Cotterills Drainage was conceived.

Now 20 years later our drainage supply operation extends to over 2500 farmers and 3500 contractors, groundworkers, construction companies, government agencies and many more.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my family and ride my motorbike across the alps.
