We Hear You!

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.

Our People

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.

Moose's grandparents founded Long Beach Welding Supply (LBWS) in 1919 at the Long Beach Harbor, and as a result, he has spent his entire life in the welding supply industry. He started out sanding and painting cylinders then moved on to truck driver, warehouse attendant, inside sales, showroom sales, outside sales, vice president and finally president. LBWS was eventually acquired by HI Tullis (where many Encore employees got their start), then Moose went to work for one of the major, public welding supply companies when it acquired HI Tullis. Now, after thirteen years at a large, publicly traded corporation, he is excited to get back to his independent roots by switching to Encore.

Born in Long Beach and raised in Seal Beach, Moose lives in Huntington Beach with his two children. In his free time, he loves to cook any and every kind of food (especially BBQ).
