International wood-based panel product manufacturer Egger is celebrating their 60th anniversary with a new corporate video that is available for view on their website or YouTube.

The 13-minute corporate video tells the story of the Egger Group and ventures a look into the past, present and future. The focus is on the perspectives of the employees. In addition to the owners and the Group Management, employees introduce the company and describe what makes Egger special for them – from the first plant manager of the St Johann site Manfred Dittrich, to mechanical engineering apprentice Alexander Dorfer, and from Russian quality manager Anastasiya Cherkasova to sales employee Roman Klejzerowicz from Poland.

The video also picks up on the themes that have characterised the EGGER Group. These include: international growth, customer focus of products and services, responsible and transparent management, continuous innovation and further development, diverse development opportunities for employees and the value of good partnerships.

Egger was founded in 1961 by founder Fritz Egger Senior, who was succeeded by his sons, Fritz and Michael Egger. Growth, continuous development of products and services as well as internationalisation and the opening up of new markets have characterised the last six decades. The company has grown from a Tirolean sawmill into establishing an international presence as a full-range supplier in the woodworking industry.

Yet, despite all these innovations, many things have remained constant over time at Egger. The motto that Fritz Egger Senior abide by was “wood is far too valuable to simply throw away”. To this day, the values and visions of the founder are the basis of the company’s business activities. “We make our decisions carefully. We operate sustainably and independently and invest what we have earned. We also believe in a handshake,” said Fritz Egger.

Michael Egger concluded: “The passion for the unique material wood drives us every day anew. At the same time, we are still a family company with clear values: We want to be a partner one can rely on – for our customers, suppliers and employees. On this path, we have been able to develop from our Tirolean beginnings into an international presence.”
