Dive into the heart of cutting-edge manufacturing as Northumberland's largest private employer opens its doors to Forum members for the very first time.  

With a team of more than 610 people, EGGER Hexham is one of Europe’s most technologically advanced chipboard production plants with more than £400 million being invested in their state-of-the-art facilities since 1984. 

A one-stop shop for designers, specifiers and architects, with customers across the furniture industry, building markets and DIY, EGGER’s history stretches back to the 1960s when Fritz Egger Senior opened his first chipboard plant in St Johann, Austria.

Through acquisitions, a passion for quality and reliability, and investments in the business, EGGER steadily grew, becoming the leading brand for wood-based solutions with over 22 production sites globally.

Still a family-owned company with clear values (respect, quality and progress), EGGER has always acted with future generations in mind. From their first plant, where Fritz Egger Senior would recycle wood scraps into chipboard, to today’s energy-efficient manufacturing sites, sustainability is at the core of EGGER’s DNA.

In this on-site visit to EGGER Hexham, you’ll learn more about the company's history, its success and future. As Northumberland’s largest private employer, you’ll discover what makes EGGER Hexham a rewarding place to work, from their professional and personal growth schemes to their new apprentice training academy.  

Don't miss this rare opportunity to witness the union of innovation and sustainability alongside family values and reliability and book your place today.
