About the employer

In the 1950s, Susan Williams-Ellis and her husband Euan Cooper-Willis began selling pottery in the gift shop in Portmeirion, a tourist village in North Wales which was created by Susan’s father, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Some of the pottery was designed exclusively for the Portmeirion shop by Susan, who was then a freelance designer and illustrator. The pottery was manufactured and decorated by A. E. Gray & Company Limited, a small pottery business in Stoke-on-Trent.

In 1960, Susan and Euan acquired A. E. Gray & Company Limited, shortly followed, in 1961, by the acquisition of Kirkhams Limited. The two businesses were combined at Kirkhams Limited’s premises, which the Group has continued to occupy, and the design and manufacture of pottery products bearing the name “Portmeirion” began.

In 1972, the introduction of Portmeirion Botanic Garden, a design created and shaped by Susan Williams-Ellis, led to a significant increase in turnover. This distinctive design has since been complemented by the introduction of many new motifs and shapes over the years. Portmeirion Botanic Garden continues to be the highest selling pattern of Portmeirion Group with ongoing sales of over £30 million annually.
