Our History

How Lloyd Purdy & Co Got Started

We have a combined total of over 110 years of experience in the business, but we are not old.

Our founder and father, Lloyd Purdy, started the agency in 1947 in downtown Portland. When Lloyd Center mall was completed in 1960, it didn’t take him long to decide the move there would be beneficial. Since 1961 we have been in the Lloyd Center and are currently on the 3rd floor in the west mall. We are now in the second generation of ownership and continue with the same integrity that our parents taught us. In fact, we have logged more years in the business than our parents.

We know the consumer market is changing and we are ready to be a part of the computer-driven age. The pieces are in place to serve our customers via the web, email, and good old fashion way, over the phone. Service is our focus regardless of the route you choose.
