COMPANY HISTORY

Andrews & Sons Drilling Ltd. was established in 1974 by Kevin & Brian Andrews. Driven by the desire to expand the business they gained experience by taking on work around the world, the Caribbean, Africa and Mexico to name a few.

In 2000, Brain Andrews wanted to move away from drilling and into a different business venture.  For this reason, both Kevin & Brian Andrews decided to sell their company. Having worked closely for many years prior, Friesen Drillers Ltd, based out of Steinbach, Manitoba, was a perfect fit.
