About Andrews Cooper

In 1999, Hewlett-Packard moved its medical device operation out of McMinnville OR. Neal Andrews and Steve Cooper loved their work at HP, but knew that relocating to Boston wasn’t the right thing for their growing families.

They envisioned a company by engineers, for engineers, where the HP Rules of the Garage could be truly expressed and the practice of device engineering could be elevated to its potential.

They built a community founded on respect for excellence, dedication to teamwork, and positive contribution to the betterment of the world.

Over the years, Neal and Steve’s vision resonated with customers, colleagues, and suppliers in a vibrant community that builds great things and is built to last.

About Andrews Cooper

We Believe…

…that when people are aligned with their mission and each other, the experience of technology development is optimal and results are maximized. AC’s mission is to create the conditions for expression of engineering in its highest form – great teams applied to missions that matter, free from needless distraction or friction.

…that maximum learning happens when hypotheses are tested by constructive challenge. When everyone has a voice and trusts in their colleagues, we all get smarter – together. We cultivate opportunity for professional growth, advancement, and leadership, because mentorship raises everybody’s game.

…that we share an obligation to be a force for good in the world – part of everyone’s solution and no one’s problem. AC is proud of more than 20+ years of dedication to truth, justice, and inclusion. We know that goodness and smarts come in every flavor of human, and we actively reject racism, sexism, and discrimination in all their forms.

…that our work is a fundamental drive, and solving new problems provides intrinsic reward. When we collaborate with a sense of purpose, in alignment with teams of smart, good-hearted people, we bring out the best in us all, and together we deliver the extraordinary.

Help Each Other Win

We value winning as a team over personal recognition. We will go out of our way to help a teammate and the team be successful.

We care so much about being a good teammate that we will give and receive feedback, even when it makes us uncomfortable, because it makes us better.

We make generous use of the first-person plural pronoun, WE. “We” deliver success, together.

Similarly, “we” gracefully accept responsibility for setbacks and work hard to turn them into triumphs.

Think servant leadership, teammate, candor, selfless, and humility (curiosity).

We don’t wait for someone else to clear the way. When we recognize an opportunity to make things better, we take action. When we encounter obstacles, we join forces to overcome them.

Our relentless pursuit of solutions is what drives our creative problem solving. We take our commitments and our customer’s success seriously and put in the extra effort when needed.

When we fall short, we take responsibility and do what we can to make it right.

We think beyond what our customer has asked us to do by considering their goals and acting like we are a colleague rather than vendor.​

Think responsibility, accountability, creative problem solving, and effort.

Giving Back to the Community

Community Involvement at AC

Neal, Steve, and the AC family believe in giving back to the communities that have supported and nurtured their growth. At Andrews Cooper, we recognize the importance of community involvement and have a long-standing commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Every year, our team participates in community service projects, supporting local organizations and initiatives, ranging from environmental clean-ups to education mentorship programs for young aspiring engineers. We strive to create positive change in the tech industry, our neighborhoods, and local societies.

We’ve proudly partnered with local schools, offering workshops and internships to help students gain real-world engineering experience. Our engineers volunteer their time to mentor the next generation, ensuring they have the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the fast-paced world of technology.

Our ‘AC Gives Back’ initiative has donated to various charitable organizations, supporting causes that resonate with our core values. When a company is fortunate enough to succeed, it is responsible for sharing that success with the broader community.

By prioritizing community involvement, we aim to inspire others in our industry to do the same. Our vision goes beyond just engineering; we aim to build a brighter future for everyone.
