EGGER celebrates new U.S. plant progress

July 31, 2019

Austrian based EGGER Wood Products celebrates a construction milestone and the start of production equipment installation at its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Lexington, N.C.

EGGER Wood Products, an Austrian wood-based materials supplier for the furniture, construction and flooring industries, is in the progress of investing $700 million in a new plant in North Carolina at Davidson County’s I-85 Corporate Center, with plans to add as many as 770 new manufacturing jobs over 15 years.

Local officials, contractors, site workers and employees gathered to mark completion of the project’s major structural elements by placing a tree on the topmost roof beam, an Austrian building tradition.

“This is a moment worthy of celebration for EGGER,” said Bernhard Vorreiter, technical and production project manager at EGGER. “Our project teams and contractors have contributed to very successful progress over the past six months. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has played a role in this project since the Lexington site was selected for our first U.S. manufacturing facility.”

EGGER’s project broke ground in November 2018 and the facility is expected to open in 2020.
