On June 28, 2019, EGGER Biskupiec began to operate its state-of-the-art chipboard production plant for furniture manufacturing. It is the EGGER Group’s 19th plant in the world, with capacity of 650,000 cubic meters of chipboard and an investment of €440 million. With 400 direct and 600 indirect jobs, EGGER Biskupiec will supersede the current chipboard import for Poland – one of the largest furniture producing countries in the world.
“I am delighted that we have started production at our EGGER Biskupiec plant, and together with our management team and employees we are honored to become an important supplier to the Polish furniture industry. We’ve been active in Poland since the early 1990s, and are successfully working with more than 150 local customers”, announced Michael Egger – the co-owner of the company. “We are also proud to contribute to local development in Warmia-Masuria region by offering almost 1,000 jobs during the construction and now, when operating.”
