About our site in Hexham

With more than 600 employees and an output of approximately 630,000m3 of raw chipboard per annum, our Hexham plant is one of Europe’s most advanced chipboard production facilities.

We organise lots of activities for our employees. For example, everyone has the chance to take part in our Health Promotion Programme, which includes advice on fitness, diet and nutrition to an annual football tournament where a team from EGGER Hexham meets teams from EGGER Group’s other locations.

Through our fitness initiative EGGER Runs, employees can raise money for charities by taking part in organized running events. In 2014 our employees raised £4,300 for 21 different charities by completing 38 different events totalling 1,084km!

The EGGER Charity Committee organises events to raise money for EGGER’s nominated charities Tynedale Hospice at Home (Hexham), CLIC Sargent for Children with Cancer (Barony) and Ayrshire Sands (Barony). We also consider donation requests from local good causes.
