EGGER’s newest facility in Lexington, N.C., is the company’s first manufacturing plant in North America and 20th worldwide. Development and construction of the three-phase project began in 2018. The first phase, a state-of-the-art particleboard manufacturing plant with lamination capacities, reached a key milestone in September 2020 with the start of production.
At full build-out, the project will involve an investment of approximately $700 million and create an estimated 770 direct jobs. The facility contributes to the regional economy through the purchase of wood byproducts from sawmills in and around the state, and through work with a range of local suppliers for additional services.
