Scott C. Andrews
C.E.O | President
Scott is a metal finishing and coatings specialist and also a certified expert witness in these fields. Scott has honed his experience through many years of business ownership and continuing educational improvements to stay at the top of the industry.
Scott is a third generation southern Californian, coming from a loving family deeply rooted in the motorsports racing community. Scott started working for his father at age 12, packaging motorcycle helmets at the family’s manufacturing facility. Scott grew up being active in football, motorcycling, car racing and other outdoor activities, which presented him with many career opportunities.
After testing many professions from fast food to corporate sales, he remembered his grandfather’s imparted wisdom: “In order to truly be successful, you need to be in business for yourself”. Scott never forgot those words. In his 20’s Scott knew that he had to be a business owner and that he would do whatever was necessary to achieve that goal. That opportunity came at age 28 when a family member offered to help him purchase his first successful company, Andrews Powder Coating, Inc. (then called PC Enterprises).
Scott immediately started a crash course in powder coating. With no training from the original owner, Scott was forced to learn with a trial by fire. Previous experience as a certified Architectural Hardware Consultant (AHC) in the commercial architectural doors, frames and hardware business allowed for an expansion of Scott’s knowledge of metal finishing. The understanding of base metals and the platings and coatings applied to them was instrumental in his rapid understanding of the powder coating business.
Following the purchase of APC, Scott enrolled in training courses and went to all available trade shows. The tail wagged the dog during this learning curve, but Scott quickly took hold of the business and doubled the sales in just two years. Sales have continued to rise, and with exception of the Great Recession (2008-2011), the business has prospered well under his leadership. Scott took on a new business partner in 2002 with the addition of his wife Sandee. Sandee has performed well at his side and has been a great asset. The husband, wife and their vested team of employees have consistently kept the company well directed and profitable.
When not at Andrews Powder Coating, Inc. Scott enjoys the sport of Land Speed Racing (LSR) and has served on the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) Board in the roles of President, Chief Timer, Race Director and Secretary. In conjunction to his roles with the SCTA he also serves on the Bonneville Nationals, Inc. (BNI) Board of Directors. Scott is also a member of the Spirit of America World Land Speed Record team serving as the Logistics Director and Chief Timer for the ultimate World Land Speed Record team. When not racing LSR vehicles he is also supportive of his wife Sandee’s love of endurance racing on their Arabian horses, and together they share a love of photography, mountain biking and scuba diving.

When not at the shop, you will find her taking pictures in the local hills on either her Arabian horse Tommy, or her mountain bike. Sandee serves on the Chatsworth Neighborhood Council Equestrian Committee to help maintain and preserve our open spaces for our local outdoor enthusiasts.
