MOD Builder Brimming with Business

WDAZ-TV reports from Grand Forks, North Dakota modular home builder Homark Homes is having trouble keeping up with demand for housing coming from the oil boom in western ND. Located just across the ND border in northwestern Minnesota, a strong Canadian dollar is bringing business from the north as well. The company reached a peak of 40 homes in two weeks last spring, half the company’s production in a normal year. James Hassel of Homark says what used to take six week now needs three or four months. “We’ve lost some business over it, and now we are almost caught up. But we are definitely in the right spot saving customers in western North Dakota transportation costs,” he says. Additionally they are working with a Dickinson developer to build homes for a new subdivision. “That will 25 percent of our business for the year, and for the next three years,” he adds. As MHProNews has learned, none of these are for man camp housing in the oil fields. The company has 100 employees, having just hired an additional 16.
