Portway Stoves was established in the
early 1800's when the owner of a well established ironmongery
store took inspiration from the very first enclosed
metal stove which was in North America in the 1700's.
He then built his own custom stove to heat his ironmongery
store. Portway Stoves became so successful that they
lasted late into the 1980's without much change.
The reason why Portway Stoves became such a large success
was due to their high efficiency. The stoves would burn
so slowly that they would extract the highest amount
of heat from the solid fuel. These stoves were names
'Tortoise' stoves which then produced the infamous moto
'Slow but Sure' which was displayed on the front of
the stove. Portway Stoves have been dubbed the founding
'father of energy efficiency'
