Andrews & Foster, a family-owned, full service drilling,
exploration and development firm, has 75+ years of experience serving clients ranging from individual homeowners, farmers and ranchers to multinational corporations. With expertise in several types of drilling and exploration, A&F has achieved excellence from its beginning. With the goal of bringing water to homeowners, ranchers and farmers in East Texas, M.C. Andrews Sr. purchased a single drilling rig in 1940, marking the official founding of Andrews Drilling Company. As rural communities grew throughout the 1940s, the demand for water increased; as a result, the company prospered. In 1952, Andrews’ daughter Betty married Donald D. Foster who later became an integral part of the company; so integral, in fact, that the company was eventually renamed to Andrews & Foster Drilling Company. With the help of Foster, the services offered by the company were expanded to include water well drilling for both individuals and entire communities, which is a service that remains a staple of the company to this day. Twenty years later, after learning the business inside and out, Foster’s son, Donald (Don) Foster, joined the family business full-time in 1982. Since then, Andrews & Foster has participated in numerous projects throughout the United States, Western Europe, and Asia. The family legacy continues today with Don, as company president, and his daughter Ashley, vice president.
