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.
Land owners and loggers who search for a market for their pulpwood logs in the area will also benefit. If you are interested in working with EGGER, please reach out to moc.regge@xel-ofni.
EGGER actively participates in the development of regions where it operates. The construction of the plant in Lexington, which is planned to start in late 2018, will be the first step in that direction. It will create approximately 400 jobs in the first phase of construction.
The investment in Lexington will also lead to economic activation in the region to meet the needs of employees and their families who may be moving to the area.
Given that every community has different expectations and problems, EGGER always listens to the needs of the local community and takes them into account when planning its activities in the region. The company also actively cooperates with the local and regional authorities for the benefit of local citizens.
