In the 2015/16 business year, EGGER made growth and maintenance investments of EUR 302.7 million (previous year: 263.3 million EUR).
A large part went into the expansion of the Gagarin location (RU) to include a MDF/HDF production facility, including additional coating lines as well as flooring production. Another important part was in the Austrian locations, St. Johann in Tirol and Unterradlberg, with investments in the field of logistics and modernisation of component manufacturing and upgrading. Other growth investments were implemented in our English and French plants of Hexham (UK), Rambervillers (FR) and Rion des Landes (FR). This involved logistics investments, modernisations of the upgrading lines, as well as energy and maintenance improvements.
