Our History

Bert Oostenbrink, the founder, started selling drip irrigation products in Southern Alberta for residential turf and shelter belts from the back of his truck. In 1987 Bert moved with his family to Chilliwack and together with his brother-in-law Bill Neels, started Southern Drip Irrigation Ltd. With a staff of two, Southern Drip Irrigation started out by selling irrigation products to the local nurseries, greenhouses and dairies.

Since those days Southern Irrigation has evolved into a multi-faceted company with four locations that does not sell just “drip”, but everything related to water. Southern Irrigation is involved in all kinds of projects including sewer, drainage, municipal, golf, commercial greenhouses, and manure transfer.

Today five of Bert’s sons: Jeff, Mitch, Alfred, Albert, and Frank are employed in the company, and the grandchildren are anxious to begin in a business that has been providing exceptional service for over 30 years.

Thanks to all our customers for your support. You are the backbone of our success. It reinforces our motto, “customers are always first”.

– Jeff Oostenbrink, CEO
