ATechBuilder Wants to Enter the Oil Field Man Camp Industry

ATechBuilder wants to build and ship houses for the Bakken from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

In an effort to avoid the housing and workforce issues companies are facing in oil field towns, Rick Downs of ATechBuilder Corp. wants to establish a home manufacturing facility in Fort Yates, which could bring up to 45 full-time jobs to the area.

The cost for the 36,000- square-foot building facility would be about $1.5 million, Downs said. He said he is still looking for investors and has not yet decided how the facility construction will be funded.

American RTM Homes are built and sold by independent businesses under license from ATechBuilder Corp.

The homes would be built in full, finished and shipped whole from the facility, Downs said. The homes range in size from 1,100 square feet to 2,500 square feet and are meant to go onto a finished basement or crawl space.
