“The purpose of the visit was to provide the Trade Commissioner a firsthand experience with the day-to-day operations and processes of a company uniquely suited to the fabrication and repair needs of Mongolia’s burgeoning mining industry,” Gemini’s VP of Business & Product Development Mike Walchuk said.

After touring the machine works, rotating equipment repair center and heavy equipment repair facility the Trade Commissioner attended several operations, planning meetings as well as Gemini’s monthly HSE meeting. Mr. Erdenebayar’s role is to assist Canadian companies by providing advice on marketing strategies and up-to-date market and sector information to help smooth the path for Canadian companies looking to do business in Mongolia.

Chris Neitsch, who recently returned from Mongolia himself said, “Mongolia holds an abundance of mineral resources, a thriving mining sector, comparable climate and geography as well as similar service and supply requirements as Alberta’s major oilsands players. There are excellent JV opportunities for companies that have the right capabilities, experience and ambition to move in that direction.”

Gemini operates two 45,000 sq. ft. facilities specializing in large OD and production machining, rotating and heavy equipment repair, structural fabrication and pressure piping with joint venture partnerships in Columbia, Poland, China, and Mongolia.
