EGGER to build a wood-based materials plant in Lexington, North Carolina
9 August 2017
EGGER plans to build a wood-based materials plant in Lexington, North Carolina. The project implementation is scheduled to take place in several stages, the first being the construction of a chipboard plant with coating capacities, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The first project phase involves an investment volume of approximately Euro 260 million and will create 400 direct jobs over the next six years. Assuming all agreed framework conditions are fulfilled and the relevant permits are obtained, construction should start by the end of 2018. Production should start in 2020.
The North Carolina plant will have ultramodern facilities for producing laminated chipboard, and will allow EGGER to better serve its customers in North-America.
