Born and raised in Wilmington, California, Eric Beecher has spent eleven years amassing substantial knowledge about industrial gases and welding supplies. As Inside Sales Representative, Eric is always available to answer questions, provide recommendations, track down hard-to-find products and provide the highest level of service to our customers.
When he's away from the office, it's a good bet you'll find Eric attending a local sporting event or watching his favorite team on TV.
With fourteen years of industry experience, Sales Representative Javier Martin is well versed in safety and customer service. Knowledgeable about gasses, welding, and industrial processes, one of Javier's favorite things to do is learn about new technologies and how they can benefit Encore's 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). A former high school football and baseball player, he remains passionate about those sports and coaches kids in Huntington Beach. A strong believer that outstanding customer service is the most important part of running a good business, Moose does whatever it takes to ensure that his customers are completely satisfied (even loading deliveries in his personal truck!)
A sales executive for 17 years, and a ten-year tool industry veteran, Tim's passion for customer service is a natural fit with Encore's culture. As Specialty Tool Sales Representative, Tim is responsible for continuing the expansion of Encore's hand and power tool business, along with associated products and services, such as: hardgoods, consumables, supplies and gases.
Born in Mattoon, IL, Tim was raised in Anaheim, CA from the age of two, and his favorite non-work related activity is spending time with his three-year old daughter. He's also a big sports fan, especially of baseball, football, pool and bowling.
Tim joined Encore because he appreciates the company's supportive, family atmosphere (toward both employees and customers), and he especially likes Encore's daily focus on continued growth, while never losing focus on treating its customers right and having fun along the way.
Years ago, Martin earned the nickname, "Mr. 24/7" because of his dedication to his customers.
With prior experience working for two Encore customers in the petrochemical construction sector - and more recent experience with a home construction company (while putting himself through Cal State Los Angeles) - Martin's experience in construction gives him unique insight into the role a great vendor plays in the success of a project, especially in times of immediate need.
At Encore, Martin is responsible for sales, with a focus on contractors and manufacturing. According to Martin, "I want to be part of an American company that is not beholden to quarterly reports and a fickle stock market. My driving passions are helping to grow Encore throughout California, and cementing our reputation as the most admired and respected company in our sector."
The dedication and enthusiasm of the Encore team, he says, are infectious and inspiring.
Born in Los Angeles, and raised in Paramount, CA, Martin recently recommitted himself to Olympic weightlifting and boxing. He loves to read about politics, economics, math and history (especially American history). Together with his girlfriend, other interests include hiking, and watching soccer and boxing.
