About Us

Encore Web Works was founded in 2001 by Steve Bowers. After having worked in the web world for large companies, Steve decided to start Encore. His goal was to offer the same big business technologies along with better customer service to companies of all sizes. 

For more than 15 years, Encore Web Works has been offering web design, web development, custom content management systems (CMS), and hosting services. Our service offerings have also grown to include ADA web site compliance audits.

Our Focus
While some things change, our primary focus has been unwavering - merge innovative technology and excellent customer service to help our clients grow and succeed.  This approach has enabled us to grow a
portfolio of diverse clients.

Here is how we do it:
  1. Take the Time - We take the right amount of time to get-to-know each client and the business needs of each project.
  2. Speak the Truth – We make suggestions and recommendations based on client goals. Sometimes we may tell a client something that's hard to hear. But every suggestion we make is to help achieve the best results for our client. Many times we show a client something new that had not been considered.
  3. Act with Integrity – Above all else, we operate with integrity. We believe in the difference between right and wrong. We will always do the right thing, even if it means losing a few dollars.
