For years, the welding and industrial supply industry has been dominated by a small number of publicly traded giants. To us, you're not just an account number.
As multi-generational industry veterans, we know the industry is changing. And, there is a better way.
Encore stands for a return to the time-tested values we grew up with. At the same time, we embrace modern technologies and methodologies which add even more value to our customers' experience.
As a privately owned and founder-led company, Encore is responsive and 100% customer focused. That means we know your name, and we understand your goals and objectives.
We hear you, and we're here to help you succeed.
We prefer working with people who enjoy coming to work every day, and we imagine you do too. That's why we've carefully curated an enthusiastic, talented and knowledgeable staff of industry professionals. Many of us have worked together for a long time, collaborating to master the needs and expectations of our customers.
Born and raised in Long Beach, California, A.C. spent four years serving his country in the U.S. Army before starting his career at a small welding rental and repair shop. He has been in the welding supply and specialty gas industry ever since, having worked for both major and independently owned companies for more than 30 years. A certified specialty gas technician, A.C. is well versed in producing ultra-high purity gases and specialty gas blends which meet exacting customer specifications.
When he's not at work, A.C. enjoys spending time with his friends, riding his Harley and hanging out with his dog, Hydro.
Encore is a member of the IWDC, a cooperative that was formed in 1994 to leverage the strengths of independent welding distributor members across North America.
As such, Encore can offer extremely competitive prices on industrial, specialty and medical gases as well as related equipment, hard goods and consumables.
Our customers benefit from having the unparalleled expertise of a local member distributor who has access to national-scale purchasing and marketing programs.
