PORTAPIVOT

Anyway Doors flagship store in Belgium

COMPANY PROFILE

Portapivot is a Belgian brand, created and engineered by the designers of ANYWAY doors.

ANYWAYdoors was founded in 1995 and specializes in high-end interior doors. Various international design awards have put their products in the spotlight all over the world. A marketing dream come true, but this created quite the challenge in regards to fulfilling these requests.

Portapivot is designed as the answer to these international requests and makes the popular room divider products and its patented hinge system accessible to every interior professional.

Portapivot offers its products as self-assembly kits, designed for interior professionals, door installers and high-end carpenters with international shipping by DHL Express.

PRODUCTION PHILOSOPHY

We believe in a production philosophy where we combine the strength of our technology, engineering and design capabilities, with local craftsmanship from all over the world.

With this business model, we offer high-tech, made-to-measure hardware systems that empower our design capabilities, but meanwhile still offer plenty of support to local suppliers.  

We encourage our clients to source finishing materials such as glass, Hi-Macs, Corian, plexiglass, HPL, MDF, ceramic plates... at local partners and therefore support the local economy!

Any professional who is capable of assembling kitchens, closets or doors can order, assemble and install our products. We designed Portapivot with special attention to assembly and installation. All the necessary hardware is included in our made-to-measure kits.

THE TEAM

Rudi Dries

Rudi Dries

CEO & product designer

Email: rudi@portapivot.com

Bio:

Rudi Dries (1960) is the product designer as well as the founder and CEO of both ANYWAYdoors and Portapivot.

As his motto ‘design follows function' shows, he is more product engineer than designer. The proof: a number of international patents but not one model registration in his name.

His concepts are primarily functionally inspired and secondly aesthetically designed. He finds inspiration in the evolution of architecture, materials, installation & maintenance analysis.

It has been his mission to hide all technical parts from view, creating designs that look deceptively simple. The result is a minimalist product, revealing smooth elements and surfaces, even when the doors are open.

Koen Dries (1982) is responsable for sales & marketing at ANYWAYdoors and focusses on marketing & technical support at Portapivot.

He joined Anyway Doors in 2004 and initially started his carreer in sales. Around 2008 he started working on online presence and the associated marketing.

Both father and son saw huge potential in the 'room divider' products & innovative hinge system, that expands far beyond the Benelux area they target with their B2C company ANYWAYdoors. They received daily requests for the pivot doors from all over the world, which triggered the creation of Portapivot.

Fast forward to 2017 and Portapivot is up and running. The external production facility for the aluminium profiles is also a Belgian owned family enterprise.
