Andrew (Andy) V. Papoutsis built the APX Company to provide high-quality fabricated products to the market with the philosophy that if you focus on providing superior value to your customers, you will build durable business partnerships. Andy has long understood that hard work is the backbone of success. Immigrating to the United States from Greece in 1951 and settling in south central Pennsylvania as a young boy, Andy worked his way through school. After graduating from high school, he enrolled at the University of Maryland, but his studies were cut short as he was called to serve his country in Vietnam, which he did with pride. Upon his return, he finished his studies at Shippensburg University where he graduated in 1972.

Andy’s professional career has spanned 45 years in manufacturing operations. Andy’s expertise in metals fabrication/manufacturing and metals procurement comes from his time at Grove Worldwide (now Manitowoc) and Ingersoll-Rand. At Ingersoll-Rand, Andy was responsible for setting up and managing Ingersoll-Rand’s first China operations. Starting with only 3 employees, today this operation contributes hundreds of millions of dollars in value annually to its parent company.
