EGGER derived timber products
The Austrian family business Egger is among the leading brands for solutions in wood across Europe. EGGER, with its 8,200 employees over 18 sites around the world, has been making more out of natural wood since 1961 – from timber through engineered wood to decorative surfaces. The European factory was commissioned in Wismar in 1999, producing mainly the laminate flooring and OSB product lines.
The whole European market is supplied from Wismar bay. The location has proved ideal for raw material procurement and for export to Asia and Australia. Thanks to the excellent infrastructure, products from the Egger works on Haffeld travel to more than 90 countries.
The setting close to the port is furthermore favourable for utilizing residual wood, dust and waste wood within the value chains, also for energy generation. The concept of environmental protection also becomes obvious from the FSC® and PEFC certifications of the integrated location.
The second factory at the Wismar site was opened to great fanfare in 2017. Thanks to an investment of 20 million euros, they can now set new standards in the industrial production of laminate and design floors. A newly constructed logistics hall and warehouse also allows all upstream and downstream manufacturing processes to be completed in a 3,000m2 area. The commissioning of this second factory has driven forward the establishment and development of a research and development department in order to continue expanding their market position and reinforcing the Wismar site.
In terms of training of skilled staff on site Egger offers career opportunities in a company that is active across Europe but has yet retained the character of a family business.
