More from wood

Our Mission

Our values are dynamism, loyalty, responsibility and trust.

We achieve sustainable international growth based on our own performance and by preserving our independence.

Integration: To integrate our value chain stakeholders, from customers to suppliers.
Identification: We are the best employer in the respective employment market relevant to us.

The EGGER core values

Our Values as a Family Company

  • We see ourselves as a transparent and modern family business and present ourselves as such on the labour market.
  • Sustainability and the further development of the company for the benefit of future generations take centre stage in our decisions.
  • Respect, trust, a good attitude towards each other and loyalty define our everyday actions.
  • We stand by our word.
  • Professional action and efficient decision-making processes constitute key success factors.
  • We live by our mission and our values (quality, respect, progress).

Our Customer Service

We recognise the importance of developing long term customer relationships as the basis for mutual success.
The cornerstones of our work include reliable quality, skills in design and application engineering, specialised consulting, as well as services for sales support. All our services are based on current and future customer needs.

Our Quality

For us, quality is the fulfilment of defined requirements in everything we undertake.
We have committed ourselves to continuous improvement, backed up by an independently certified management system.

Our Employees and Managment

We treat each other with respect. We expect high performance and develop our employees through specific training and information programmes.
Particular credit is given to experience, passing on this experience and long-term employment.
Our managers are primarily recruited internally. They stand out with their high leadership competence and positive role model behaviour.

Our Organisation

We are a decentralised group structured around individual business units and regional organisations. Functions are centralised only where we can benefit from synergies, increase productivity, or when driven by strategic demands.
Our decision-making processes are clear and efficient.
The rules of procedure and reporting requirements form the basis of proper business management.
The strategic direction of the group is defined by the owners and Group Management, with the support of group employees as well as division management.
Individuals have the responsibility to pursue mutually-agreed targets.

Our Social Environment

In accordance with our core values, we embrace the culture and customs of the countries and regions in which we operate.
We integrate into the life of our local communities.
We support qualified employees and managers from the regions around our sites.

Our Natural Environment

The sustainable use of raw materials is a top priority for us.
We achieve this by generating energy in our own biomass power plants, and by using the most up-to-date, sustainable processing technology and environmentally friendly logistics systems.

Our Information and Communication Systems

We deliberately invest in the latest information and communication technologies.
We use these systems to manage our business efficiently and bring our business partners closer to the relevant business processes.
