Cotton History


Originally founded in Houston, Texas, in 1996 by Pete Bell and Daryn Ebrecht, Cotton built upon its reputation of excellence to expand throughout Texas, then to strategic locations in the United States and the Caribbean, focused on providing a single source solution to corporate and retail businesses, commercial office, manufacturing and industrial clients, the healthcare, education, hospitality and entertainment industries, as well as the public sector, following damage resulting from isolated incidents and large scale disasters.

Consisting of multiple specialized divisions, Cotton has been instrumental in the recovery and restoration efforts stemming from the world’s most damaging catastrophes of the past two decades, including high-impact weather events and other natural disasters, wildfires, terrorism, vandalism and environmental mishaps. Beyond disasters, Cotton provides comprehensive logistical support solutions and consultation to a host of local and international clients including Fortune 500 companies, oil and gas corporations, private contractors and government agencies.

Cotton’s steady growth is attributed to our commitment to providing the highest level of customer service in the marketplace and the strength and dedication our “Cotton family” team displays each day. And with the same core management group leading Cotton’s efforts for the last decade, we operate in a stable environment and have earned trust among our corporate partnerships. Having recently completed a corporate move to our new Cotton Campus, in Katy, Texas, the stage is being set for anticipated expansion of operations. We will continue to raise the industry standard of expectations, and we look forward to serving our clients into the future.
