Early this year the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) hosted a trade mission to Mongolia which included several visits to key mines and participation in Mongolia Mining Expo 2019.

Air-Seal Products saw this as an opportunity having previously supplied a trial quantity to a potential Mongolian distributor. Steve Jones, Air-Seal Products said, “We hoped that our product was met with interest and our aim was to look for a suitable distributor to represent Air-Seal Products in Mongolia.”

The company’s Managing Director Alex Burnand, and Sales Representative Steve Jones, arrived in Ulaanbaatar on April 6th where they travelled by road and track for a visit to the Mongolian Mining Corporation Ukhaa Khudag mine, which is located in the South Gobi desert for their first visit.
