In July of last year, the EGGER Group announced that it would build a wood-based material factory in Lexington, North Carolina. A first step has been taken with the ground-breaking ceremony for the office building on site. In early 2019, around 80 administrative employees will be able to move into their new workplaces. The wood-based material manufacturer is planning to start the construction of the production plant at the end of 2018.
The modern office building, which is expected to be completed in early 2019, will house EGGER’s North American future office staff. In addition, EGGER plans to set up a training centre there to train and promote local professionals. At the same time, the company's own building offers the opportunity to present EGGER products and services to architects, designers, retail and furniture industry customers.
