encore's history

Encore Steel was developed in 2003 from a recognition that the steel industry was beginning to lack many important values and qualities - like commitment. During this time period, the economy was beginning to boom and steel fabricators were in great demand. The industry was concerned about volume and the lack of virtues like honesty, quality and integrity were unbelievably evident. As a person who believes that relationships are more important than revenue, I was requested from many companies to form my own company. In this time, I chose to take a chance with no capital and no certainty that Encore Steel would succeed. I knew I could guarantee my customers who would take a chance in Encore Steel, that they get back the experience of honesty, quality, and integrity.

building relationships - not just projects.

These reasons are how the name Encore Steel came to be and why our fundamentals are critical to a projects success. My goal was always to build relationships, not just a project. To this day, we have grown from a single person entity serving a single geographic location to a substantial operation with various projects in multiple states. The best part about this growth is the success of surrounding myself with the best staff in the industry. My team’s belief in the foundation of Encore Steel’s principals, unparalleled level of service and goal to build relationships is what has led to be the sought after company we are today. Our motto, “Structured for Your Success” can be your experience as well. Come find out why.

committed to giving back to the community

Team Encore, as well as my personal family are all adamant believers and supporters in helping others. Every year at Christmas our team puts together contributions towards charities in need. When our team selects a charity, we partner up with one we are close to, can relate with, and one that needs every dollar it receives. When our team puts together these contributions it is then my personal goal to match those contributions. Year in and year out my extended family and I firmly believe in giving back. Our contributions include monetary involvement, as well as time commitments. That is the Encore and Sehnal family way!

our core focuses


As Encore Steel continues to grow in volume, size and geographical location there is one thing that does not change, our Focus. Focus is not only maintaining core values of our company like service but also discovering through service how we can meet our customer’s needs from project to project. For every project there are other needs besides fabrication capabilities. Those needs are service related whether its design assistance through GMP documents, BIM modeling for clash detection, or specific installation considerations for seismic retrofits.


With all of the focus and commitment to service that our team exemplifies, it has allowed us to grow from non existence to the fabrication capabilities we have today. Our Phoenix, AZ plant has continued to rapidly grow and evolve. Our plant is currently housed under 10 acres with 90,000 sqare feet of fabrication space under roof. What makes our plant different than most plants is the utilization of space, high efficiency handling and floor plan versatility. As most fabrication companies can attent, excessive handling is the critical weakness in the fabrication process. To minimize handling, we have researched and strategically maximized our equipment placement, installed conveyors, transfers and overhead cranes whiles training versatility throughout each department’s personnel. The additional uniqueness of our plant is that it is broken out into bays. Each bay has evolved throughout the years to adapt to our customers and project’s needs..


One of the most common questions we are asked, is what size projects do we do, or what is our fabrication capability? This is not a simple answer! Since our foundation is to service our customers, we get involved in all sorts of fabrication with carbon steel. As described in our Capabilities section, we can handle everything from heavy tonnage projects, to high rise stair with railing systems. We have taken an approach to be as flexible for each and every customer’s needs, in terms of project size and type. We can be involved in anything small and simple, to large and complex, as long as we do not waiver from our ability to provide high levels of service.
