They decided to move ahead and embark on the patenting process to assure the product was secured. With patent in hand, the founders researched manufacturing organizations to choose one that would be able to produce the product in a way that it would remain cost-effective but keep the integrity of the product design intact. The objective was always to create a quality product that was affordable and so, to that end, they reviewed several options until they found a suitable match.
Though they released the product in 2003 with conventional direct efforts, the founders quickly realized they had to invest in some outbound marketing. A website was designed and they pursued advertising to align with potential buyers. With visibility, the company immediately saw growth and Port-A-Wall began to see success. Customers saw a much-needed product at an affordable price and the intended simple room divider started being used for a litany of unforeseen and creative uses: clinical screenings, offices, dorm rooms, events and so many more. The low-cost, transportability and easy-to-use and set up product became a perfect fit in many scenarios and environments.
Port-A-Wall continues to grow with founders who still run the family business today. The company strives to provide a quality, general-purpose room divider/privacy screen at a reasonable price for any customer.
