Cooper Research Technology is a world leader in the development and manufacture of high-performance test and measurement equipment relied on globally by prominent laboratories for research and analysis of the performance of construction materials.

Founded by Keith Cooper over 30 years ago, we have earned a global reputation for pioneering the development of high-performance test equipment that is accurate, robust, and offers unparalleled whole-life value. Following his retirement, the company was subsequently transferred to his son Andrew who continued to push it forwards to develop new products and markets, before eventually selling it in 2016. Inevitably, since then Andrew has been less involved in the management and strategic direction, focussing his activity on the development of new products and test methods.

Andrew has recently indicated his desire to enter a new phase in his life and will now enter a new chapter in his career as an independent consultant. His knowledge of the Asphalt Testing market is considerable and he has been a key figure in our industry where he has gained a worthy reputation.

We are therefore pleased that Andrew will continue to work with Cooper Research Technology and Cox & Sons in his new venture, primarily focussed on developing business in the USA and providing support on the development of products and services. In addition to his work with us, he will be developing complimentary products and services for his own benefit as well as pursuing other personal interests.

On behalf of all of his colleagues, I would like to thank Andrew for all his dedication and passion that have been fundamental to our success, and we look forward to his continued commitment to our new working relationship. We wish him all the success in his future ventures.

Cooper Research Technology and Cox & Sons will continue to develop our pioneering approach by developing industry-leading products and technical support services that will help to maintain our position at the forefront of our industry.

Our Team will be at TRB 2023 next week.

Please stop by booth 401 to say hello to us all, and wish Andrew well for the future in person.

Yours sincerely,

Tony Otter
