The first project stage entails an investment volume of about € 260 million and will create 400 direct jobs within the next six years, as the enterprise informs. Given that all agreed upon conditions are met and the according approvals are obtained in time, construction will commence by the end of 2018. Production start is scheduled for 2020.

"This production site plays a critical role for Egger's growing presence in the North American market for wood materials. It will secure product availability for our customers and increase delivery speed", says Walter Schiegl, head of Egger's Group Management Production / Technology.
