US company Gastineau Log Homes to build presence in Mongolia

A company located in New Bloomfield, USA has expanded its international market and will soon distribute its goods to Mongolia.
Gastineau Log Homes, located on Old Highway 54 in New Bloomfield, will send 25 of its home kits to Mongolia’s capitol, Ulaanbaatar, and will double that number by next year, said Lynn Gastineau, the company’s president.
Gastineau finished hosting Mongolian business leaders and potential customers Wednesday, which included a distributor, mining company executive, president of a technical college and an architect with the country’s department of economic development. She said Mongolians have an interest in log homes because of their easy construction, strength, energy efficiency and external and internal appeal.
Mongolian homes, she said, are typically made from concrete and have a frame construction because of the country’s lack of trees. All the timber for the homes will be imported. Gastineau will send a trainer to help the buyers build the homes.
The homes that will be built in Ulaanbaatar will be used for residential and commercial purposes. Gastineau said she knows of a doctor’s office, music hall and school potentially being housed inside one of her company’s log homes.
The deal helps ensure job security for Gastineau’s 27 employees at the New Bloomfield site. Gastineau said the U.S. housing market didn’t bounce back like many had hoped, so finding business in international markets has become vital. This year Gastineau Log Homes exports 25 percent of its business, but with the international expansion, that number will increase to 50 percent.
