About the employer

Cotterill Civils was founded in 1993 by our MD, Andrew Cotterill. With a background in farming, Andrew originally set up the company to install land drainage and environmental solutions. During this time he found he became increasingly choosy over the products he would install to the point where he decided to carry them in stock.

We're now a leader in the market.

Almost thirty years on and the business has grown into a leading UK supplier of land drainage and environmental solutions to the agriculture and construction sectors. Our customers now extend to over 2,500 farmers and 3,500 contractors as well as large multinationals, major retail brands, government agencies and many more.
