EGGER Opens First U.S. Manufacturing Plant

EGGER, an Austrian wood-based solutions supplier, has completed its first raw particleboard production, marking the start of operations at its manufacturing facility in Lexington, NC. Employees watched as the first panel underwent the final stages of production, transforming raw wood chips into a finished board as the raw materials moved through the press and finishing line. Production of particleboard, as well as thermally fused laminate (TFL), will be a major focus for the Lexington plant. The start of production comes as the company prepares to launch its first EGGER Decorative Collection on October 1, with a full range of decorative surface options, including TFL, lacquered boards, laminates, and edge banding.
