We had the good fortune of connecting with ANDY STRIKER and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi ANDY, how do you think about risk?
Take a risk without fear !You can’t lose what you never had, when you have it hold on tight! If I did not take risks I feel I would have done myself a dis service in not making the most out of the gifts i have received.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a road and flight case manufacturer. I make custom cases and effects for many different industries.Customers range from high profile musicians,science companies, religious supply companies, film and lighting industries etc. Listening to what the customer needs, and as equally important what the customer doesn’t want’ is what sets us apart. This is where the word custom takes full wing. Providing the protection the client’s instruments, product lines or any item of value is what we pride ourselves on as well as going the extra mile to back our products with servicing and repair. The biggest learning tool that lead to our success is to listen and understand the nature of of how your client uses the item the case is made for.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Always enjoy a good deli “munchfest” at Canters on Fairfax or Cupids Hot Dogs Northridge. A trip to the top of Mulholland is always cool as well as Melrose ave. on a Sunday.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
God and Family.
