rubester's review of Portland Conservatories

★★★★★

“Portland were good before amdega bought them!”

Written on: 11/03/2013 by rubester (1 review written)

I worked for Portland conservatories 13 years ago and they were an excellent company, the quality was outstanding, they were owned by homeform group then (same as moben, sharps etc) but then sold to an American company and it went downhill from there, they went into administration and unfortunately a buyer was not found so the original Portland (specialists in hardwood conservatories) no longer existed. Amdega (their biggest rival at the time) set up a 'portland conservatories' which is the shoddy stuff that you've been sold, I think that this has now also gone bust though! Just wanted to clear their name a bit as the Portland that I worked for always rectified any problems and were a good reputable company.

I worked at Portland 35 years ago, when it was just brought into MKD group. We lit the industry on fire as a direct sales company. It was a wonderful thing to sell; dreams were built!! and fortunes made. RIP Portland and thank you for some good years
