EGGER is the latest business to sign up to the Northumberland County Council Discover our Land campaign.
It joins other businesses, including Tharsus, Port of Blyth, Deep Ocean, Hepple Gin and Dispticks Research Ltd, in showing its support for the campaign.
Discover our Land was launched in January and aims to promote Northumberland as a great place to live, work, visit and invest.
The campaign is building a social movement by sharing the stories of businesses and individuals to show people from outside the county the benefits of building a career, investing and growing their business, setting up home or exploring and visiting the area.
A campaign video has been developed highlighting the work of EGGER, which will be used in a social media campaign, including Facebook and Twitter, and on the www.discoverourland.co.uk website to showcase the work being done in Northumberland.
Councillor Cath Homer, cabinet member for Culture, Arts, Leisure and Tourism at the council said: “We are delighted to have EGGER on-board with the Discover our Land campaign. Through the campaign we want to tell the story of all of the exciting things happening in industry, so to have the county’s largest manufacturing employer supporting the cause adds great weight to what we want to achieve.
“EGGER has been making huge investments at its Hexham site over the last decade or so, showing the company’s commitment to growing its business in Northumberland.
“We hope that EGGER’s support for the campaign will help to persuade other businesses from all sectors to get involved and help spread the message about what’s great about Northumberland.”
Jackie Watson, Head of Marketing Communications at EGGER said: “We are delighted to be part of the Discover our Land campaign.
“Since 2006 we have invested more than £200m at our Hexham, to make it one of the most technologically advanced chipboard plants in Europe. We invest significantly in our employees to provide a wide range of opportunities for career and personal development. With some of the country’s best landscapes and environment right on our doorstep, it makes for a great work life balance.
“We hope that by taking part in this campaign we can help to showcase the benefits of investing and doing business in Northumberland.”
EGGER was also a guest speaker at a special Discover our Land roadshow in Hexham, where businesses from across West Northumberland were invited to find out more about the campaign and how they can get involved.
