Ironhaus Purchases Portland Willamette
What that means for both companies and their product lines
After over 70 years of business Portland Willamette decided to close its doors in 2017. The well-known powerhouse of fireplace doors, patio equipment and other accessories left behind many products and a line of customers and dealers wondering what would happen next. In May 2017 Montana native company Ironhaus made the decision to assume a portion of the Portland Willamette glass door fireplace product line and equipment becoming Portland Willamette Montana. Ironhaus had previously manufactured their own line of artisan hand-forged and crafted fireplace doors and accessories.
Though there were several challenges in the beginning Ironhaus has completed the integration of the additional products and business is running better than ever. The new 40,000 square foot facility in the heart of Hamilton, Montana is complete. The forges and laser are running hard backed fully by their knowledgeable and dedicated staff.
While the PW fireplace door product line has become an integral part of the Ironhaus culture the decision to not bring any other product lines has left many questions for previous Portland Willamette customers. Products that Ironhaus did not purchase include:
- Ultra Fyre Gas Log Sets (Including the replacement parts)
- Fireplace Inserts
- Free Standing Screens
- Tool Sets
- Patio Furniture / Motorized Pergolas
- Barbecue Grills
- Any Other PW Accessories
Ironhaus does not have any replacement parts, new parts or any information thereof on these products. This also means that any previous warranties for the above listed products have become void. Ironhaus has received a number of calls requesting information about Ultra Fyre log sets and issues with pilot light assemblies. For issues of this nature Ironhaus is urging its customers to reach out to their local fireplace and/or gas log technician for assistance.
Ironhaus is working to update both websites as quickly as possible to provide accurate information on current products and events. The Portland Willamette site is currently under construction and new changes will begin rolling out in the next 2-3 months.
Integrating the new Portland Willamette Montana sister company has been a long journey and Ironhaus would like to thank all of the customers and dealers who stayed loyal to the brand through the transition. In the coming years Ironhaus will strive to continue to innovate and create the high quality timeless products that they are known for.
