Dunster House Ltd, one of the largest retail manufacturers of timber garden buildings in the UK, has recently developed a trade partnership in Sri Lanka, which has become the 19th different market in two years of international sales.


Dunster House has been established in the UK retail market since 1994, with sites in Warminster, Bedfordshire, Kent and Lincolnshire and seven factories in three countries across Europe (Estonia, Hungary and Poland).

When they started manufacturing the timber garden products (12 years ago) they employed only 35 people. Now there are over 520 members of staff working for the company.

Its export department is only two years old but it is growing rapidly. The trend looks set to continue on this course for 2014 as the company has plans to keep expanding.

Dunster House Director Chris Murphy said the company’s international activities have helped to significantly increase awareness and develop trade partnerships for many different product lines.

“In order to meet demands in the international market sector we offer a multitude of outside products from log cabins, summerhouses, garages or gazebos to climbing frames, BBQ stoves and off-grid solar. All of them are carefully planned and designed by our qualified and experienced team.”

The lion’s share of Dunster House products (around 65%) has been sold to EU countries, among which the biggest buyers are the Netherlands, Hungary and Romania. The company has been exporting to Dubai, Israel, Norway, Portugal, Japan, Finland, Russia and is continuously in new negotiations with new international markets.

The latest partnership will see Dunster House providing up to 60 units from their range of log cabins, to a hotel and hospitality product supplier based in Sri Lanka.

The company has also got involved in a charity project and started providing sanitation solutions to Oxfam.  In results, Dunster House products will improve people’s life in Sudan and Central African Republic.
