How the local community benefits from EGGER

Benefits for local community


Working at EGGER

Working at EGGER

The EGGER Group employs approximately 9,900 people from 50 countries. At EGGER, our goal is to build one strong team, where employees feel like friends or family, not just co-workers.  We believe our employees identify with the company and its family values, as evidenced by the time they stay with us--an average of more than 10 years.

One of EGGER’s strategic goals is to be the most attractive employer in its respective regions. The company continuously invests in its employees and offers fair, stable and long-term employment opportunities. We greatly value individual development options and offer attractive career opportunities

Cooperation with Local Businesses

Content Cooperation with Local Businesses

We are committed to contributing to the local community and economy by working with local suppliers and businesses. The facility will contribute 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.

Local land owners and loggers looking for a market for their pulpwood logs will also benefit. If you are interested in working with EGGER, please reach out to moc.regge@xel-ofni.

A Responsible Neighbor

EGGER Runs

EGGER actively participates in the development of the regions where it operates. The Lexington plant will create approximately 400 jobs in its early stages, and the investment in Lexington will also lead to economic activation in the region to meet the needs of employees and their families who may move to the area.

Given that every community has different expectations and challenges, EGGER always listens to the needs of the local community and takes them into account when planning its activities in the region.

One way that EGGER gives back to the local community is through its EGGER Runs initiative, where employees can raise money to benefit local non-profit organizations by participating in running events.
