Lexington, N.C. (JULY 22, 2019)
EGGER Wood Products reached a major milestone in the construction of its first U.S. manufacturing facility on Friday with celebration of a topping off ceremony and start of production equipment installation. Local officials, contractors, site workers and employees gathered to mark completion of the project’s major structural elements by placing a tree on the topmost roof beam, an Austrian building tradition.
Gray’s Site Manager Kendall Kluttz and EGGER’s Construction Project Manager Christian Kasper shared the honor of placing the tree, draped with both American and Austrian flags. EGGER, an Austrian-based company manufacturing wood-based materials, broke ground for the Davidson County facility last year.
