To support the expansion of their business through the purchase of land and the construction of a new facility Mountain Home Biological, based in Bingen Washington, received a loan in 2005 from MCEDD. Having been in business since 1995, this local company continues to grow through expanding their product lines and markets. They started out wholesaling owl pellets for classroom dissection and have since diversified to include the selling of educational laboratory equipment and supplies. While they continue to mainly work with K-12 schools throughout the US their online presence has grown allowing them to reach international markets for these supplies as well. Their MCEDD loan provided them with the financing that enabled Mountain Home Biological to scale up to meet the rising demand for their products. For more information, visit their website.
