Meet Forest Andrews, one of BPC’s newest inspectors. Earlier this year, Forrest completed the BPC Apprentice Program and obtained his National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors Commission. We are very excited to have him as part of our team!
Learn more about Forrest and how he came to be a part of our team.
BPC: How did you hear about BPC?
I was introduced to BPC through my brother, Austin. I began shadowing with him in Tennessee when I started my training.
BPC: What is your role at BPC and how long have you been working here?
I have been working with BPC since March of 2020. When I passed my test, I moved to Mississippi to work as an inspector there. Before coming on board with BPC, I had my own detailing business that I did full time.
BPC: What kind of objects are you typically inspecting?
The majority of the objects I look at are unfired pressure vessels. I also inspect recovery and power boilers at Georgia Pacific Plants.
BPC: What are some interesting things you have seen on the job?
One of the really interesting things I have seen was at Ingalls Shipbuilding; there were a few navy destroyers in the bay being worked on.
BPC: What do you enjoy most about working here?
The most enjoyable thing about this job is that every day – for the most part – is different; it’s so much better than sitting in an office cubicle, seeing the same walls day in and out.
BPC: What do you think sets BPC apart from your competitors?
I like that BPC is a “smaller” company; there are a lot more interactions with other coworkers. I can easily ask others for help and get answers to any questions I may have.
BPC: Tell us about your family and life outside of work.
Outside of work I like to hunt, fish, ride dirt bikes and work on my truck. My family currently lives in Comanche, Texas where we have 100 acres of land to hunt and ride dirt bikes.
BPC is so fortunate to have Forrest join our team. Thank you for all you do, Forrest!
