EGGER’s wood purchasing department began establishing relationships with the North Carolina wood supplier community at a recent event organized by the North Carolina Forest Service.
Karl Grasser, project manager of finance and administration for EGGER in Lexington, presented alongside Tom Coates, wood purchase mentor for EGGER Lexington, and Christian Witte, head of corporate wood purchase logistics & projects, about the company’s wood purchasing strategy and opportunities available to local wood suppliers.
The event gathered 65 forestry professionals including procurement managers, forest consultants and sawmill managers. While EGGER is still in the early phases of development for its North Carolina manufacturing facility, the company understands the importance of local wood suppliers to ensure its success in North America.
