About Us

at Philip Wilson Drainage

Established in 1968 Wilson Drainage began life as a one man operation being hired in to firms such as McAlpine, Langs, Wimpey and Farrens. In 1974 we expanded into small drainage work and sub-contracting, mostly housing developments and later playing fields and golf courses due to our association with John G Duff ltd.

The 80’s and 90’s seen a dramatic increase in agricultural drainage and septic tank installation and repair. We were able to increase our range of services and equipment during this period and to date have a fleet of over 20 machines. We can install a range of efficient and effective drainage systems in areas from the smallest lawn to the largest agricultural job or civil works. We also supply and install sewage systems to the latest Environment Agency specifications for domestic or commercial customers.
