<p>Dear Jim,</p>
<p>Portland is not a trademark or a supplier of cement, it is a type of cement, in fact the most common one available from any builders merchant all over the world.<br /><br />May I use this post to wish every member of this forum a happy new year and plenty of discovery of new models etc...</p>

Thanks Jacques. I looked up some more information on it.

Portland cement, binding material in the form of a finely ground powder, usually gray, that is manufactured by burning and grinding a mixture of limestone and clay or limestone and shale. The inventor Joseph Aspdin, of England, patented the basic process in 1824, naming it for the resemblance of the cement when set to portland stone, a limestone from the Isle of Portland.
From the on line version of the Britannica encyclopedia.
