Past

'corePHP' was born in 2001 as a small-time company that specialized in Content Management Systems. It became a strong supporter of Mambo, which later became Joomla!. 'corePHP' has seen a steady growth over the past few years, and capabilities now include everything from web development to print design.

Present

Today, 'corePHP' continues to provide top-of-the-line products and services to the Joomla! community. Currently, capabilities include web hosting, accessible template design, Joomla!, WordPress and Drupal support, full service web development, custom digital menu board software and commercial print design. Clients range from small "mom and pop" organizations to worldwide corporations who specialize industries such as entertainment, media, real estate, restaurants, manufacturing, and much more. 

While competition is heavy in the internet development industry, 'corePHP' has carved out a significant niche by specializing in accessible websites. Accessibility is strongly in demand, partially because companies wish to attract large audiences, and partly due to Section 508.
