In 1999, the words blog, carbon footprint, and texting were added to the dictionary. Plus, dashcam, and The Matrix. On top of all that, Justin Davis was setting up shop as Portland Webworks, a web and software development company, in a one-room office at 5 Milk Street in Portland, Maine.
Today, we occupy the whole floor of the same building, and spill over to another level for additional meeting and workspace. President Justin Davis still runs the company he founded with a cousin and a brother-in-law, but now along with the support of 38 employees.
As we enter our 21st year, as an official “grown up,” we’re celebrating 20 years in business with the publication of our first official company timeline.
From the vantage of the present, we find the past 20 years are about two things. Our employees and our clients. Bright spots include the many contributions of the original founders, former and current team members, and business partners. And then there are the milestones. From the first account, to the first million and beyond, the company has consistently exceeded expectations and overcome obstacles to earn a place as a trusted industry service provider.
