About Us

Portel Audio Visualwho we are and what we stand for.

  Steven & Stephen

Our passion for the business comes from our surroundings, Yorkshire isn't some place built out of concrete on land reclaimed from the sea a few years ago, it's been around for hundreds of years shaping us to be passionate about our environment and our products.

We are an ‘old-school’ business. Both owners are engineers with many years of experience in the telecoms industry. Set up in 1981 we have made many changes over the years reflecting what our customers want.

Back in the day we supplied two-way radio systems and intercoms which evolved into analogue phone systems such as Panasonic and Plessey.  Avaya and NEC systems became our mainstay once ISDN2 and ISDN30 arrived. 

We've supplied, programmed, trained and maintained a miriad of systems over the years.  In 2004 we started to produce computer Workstations and Servers which eventually led to manufacturing Voice over The Internet Protocol (VoIP) Telephone Systems.  Price is what you pay, Quality is what you get.


Happily lost in Yorkshire, conveniently distant from anywhere, in 2008 Portel was formed and we started manufacturing  small runs of VoIP 'Liberty' telephone systems 

We incorporated as Portel AV Limited in 2011 as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) products had risen to become the bulk of sales within Portel.  We are a pretty gritty business, we and our staff come from a rock solid engineering base with many years of experience which makes Portel uniquely placed to help your Company reduce overheads and maximise profits. It’s all about you and your business, we help achieve the results you require by applying our expert knowledge of both equipment and business. Why pay for middlemen and sales people when you can deal with the manufacturer direct ?


That’s who we are and what we stand for, World Class Equipment at Yorkshire Prices. Its not about Portel it's all about YOU !!
