Owner & Managing Director
Andy has been within the drainage industry for over 25 years, starting out working for a number of organisations before making the decision to set up his own business in 1999, with the company getting off the ground in 2000, hence the
name Drainage 2000.
Andy’s determination was to build a company that provided a service that was second to none and his skills and drive for this has built up an excellent reputation over the years.
Andy made the decision at the back end of 2017, early 2018 that he wanted to expand the business further and took the steps to invest heavily in the business and bring in new state of the art vehicles and plant, along with a recruitment drive and reorganisation of the office structure.
The aim is to build the business in to the best drainage company in the Midlands and beyond.
Lucy has been with the business for over 12 years, initially starting as office administrator, then quickly developing into the role of Office Manager, who keeps the whole place ticking, from both an Office management, administrative and
finance, HR and process and procedures position.
Lucy is very business focussed and an integral part of the expansion of the company. Always looking for new ways for us to improve our systems and processes, in turn provides a better experience for our customers. With this always the forefront of her thinking it ensures we build and develop as a business.
Simeon joined the business as General Manager in June 2018. After many years in the industry Simeon brings with him a wealth of knowledge alongside a positive can-do attitude to every challenge.
When Simeon joined us, he was excited by the challenge of developing the business. With Drainage 2000 focus on customer care and a strong legacy of working across the Midlands, Simeon sees the huge potential for the company. He has set about changing both the structure of the management team and recruitment of additional workforce to compliment the great set of employees the company already had, to match the ambitions of the company moving forward.
Simeon makes no apologies for health & safety being his number 1 priority and will continue to innovate practice and procedures to keep colleagues and the general public safe at all times.
