Garden house manufacturing in Estonia and in the Baltics
In 2018, Estonia contributed 24% of all of the timber buildings exported from the European Union when comparing the size of the country with some financial superpowers of Europe, this number seems crazy but represents the expertise and capabilities of the local wooden house manufacturers.
The Estonian garden house manufacturing industry, among the wooden house industry, is a force to be reckoned with on the global scale – more than 90 % of the products of Estonian wooden house manufacturers are exported to the global market. In fact, Estonia is the largest wooden house exporter in the European Union by production volume.
More than 90 % of the products of Estonian wooden house manufacturers are exported to the global market.
Estonian wooden house export volumes eclipse the numbers of other Baltic states with the primary export markets being the Scandinavian countries, Germany and the Netherlands.
Astel Garden – the most experienced garden house manufacturer in the Baltics
From about 180 active wooden house manufacturers in Estonia and a few hundred more in Latvia and Lithuania, Astel is the most experienced manufacturer of wooden buildings in the Baltics. Our first factory in Rakvere started manufacturing milled log houses over 70 years ago and is still producing wooden houses today.
The story of Astel Garden begins in 1992 when the father of our CEO Raul Kinks started building wooden garden houses. Since then, we have constantly expanded our product range and knowledge base. We have also sought new markets and acquired additional ventures (one of them being Rakvere Metsamajand with over 70 years wooden house manufacturing experience) to follow our goal of constant growth.
Increasing demand means that, more than ever, we need to increase our production capacity, especially for the mass production of garden houses.
Our success comes partly down to luck and intuition, but most of all, to our great team. We have excellent experience in project management and efficient customer support.
The transportation capabilities of today and active global export market have opened up the possibility to export our products to anywhere in the world.
The advantage of producing wooden houses in Estonia is that we can provide high quality at a reasonable price. With a highly qualified workforce and decades worth of competence, we are able to complete large orders in a short timeframe while keeping costs down.
Sustainable and responsible garden house factory
The key to the success of Astel and other wooden house factories is the sustainability of wood as a construction material. To take it one step further, our house factories in Estonia use only wood from FSC certified partners. Furthermore, we have acquired the FSC certificate of design, production, and sales of garden buildings.
Estonian garden house manufacturers can benefit from using Nordic spruce and pine. The four seasons hinder the growth of these trees, making the growth process slower. This means that the growth rings are closer together and the wood is more dense, making it more stable. That’s why Nordic spruce is valued highly across the world.
We carefully craft this beautiful material into timber products of the highest quality in our Estonian garden house factories. Our two factories in Räpina have a production area of 8000m², and our production complex in Rakvere has over 6000m² of indoor production space.
