Where did WebFX start? 1996
Like all companies, we started small. As a matter of fact, WebFX started in 1996 with CEO Bill Craig making web pages for a modest $50 a pop (or a case of beer). He worked completely out of his college dorm, Naugle Hall, at Shippensburg University, and worked with dial-up Internet.
Talk about a major grow up!

These major milestones happened between 1996 and 2002!
Tiny Little Office - 2006
WebFX got its humble beginnings in a small office space in Carlisle, called the Murata Business Center. The small team shared the office space with over 100 other workers that weren’t a part of WebFX. It was the perfect office space for our small team of 24! Did you know that 10 of the original team members are still with us today? They’ve got to see the business grow from the ground up - that’s pretty cool!
What do those team members remember about the old building? Take a look!
WebFX is a fast-growing company! - 2012
2012 was the first year that we made the list of America's fastest-growing private companies! We were pretty excited, considering companies like Microsoft, Oracle, Zappos.com, and more were on the list! With over 7 million private, employer-based companies in the U.S., we were extremely proud to be among the top!
We would go on to make the list in 2014 and 2015, too!
WebFX Bought a Mansion! - 2014
With our expanding team, it was time to think big. Our small office space in Carlisle shifted to a historic mansion on Front Street, which was built in 1895, with the space to accommodate our growing team. It has fondly become known as “The Mansion” or “MansionFX”!
The Mansion has tons of cool elements that we love - for example, on the first floor, one room has a mural of Harrisburg painted by a local artist! Another one of our favorite features of the mansion is the penthouse, along with our wrap-around, rooftop deck! It’s perfect for watching the City Island fireworks on the Fourth of July, or a great place to kick back after a long day and watch the Susquehanna roll on by!
In the beginning, The Mansion wasn’t quite habitable. But we changed that! We wasted no time with renovations - and there were a lot of them! The governor of PA even stopped by to check out WebFX. Check out some of the original photos of the mansion and see how much we’ve changed!
We won the #1 Best Place to Work in PA for the first time!

Growing Again! We Bought FX2! - 2017
Bill’s baby (WebFX) was growing quickly - almost too quickly for the mansion to contain us! We had no choice but to buy another building - one that is right next door to the mansion, and has become known as FX2!
This building is home to a giant basement kitchen and communal area, tons more meeting spaces, and our new coffee bar! The decor is as unique and fun as our team, and even has a pool table on the top floor!
FX2 and The Mansion are connected by a cozy little atrium, and we love to play golf on our private turf course between buildings! It’s also a great place to have cookouts before Senators games, or kick back for lunch when there’s a food truck!
Where are we now?
We’re still expanding! Our healthy and growing client base has given us the opportunity to hire even more team members - and we couldn’t be more excited!
What does the future hold? Another building? We’ll see!
We've REBRANDED! - 2018
WebFX is now WebFX, and we couldn't be more excited!
