Wood-based materials manufacturer Egger, which started off life as a Tirolean sawmill in 1961, is celebrating its 60th anniversary, and to mark the occasion has unveiled a new 13-minute corporate video.
The video tells the story of the Egger Group and ventures a look into the past, present and future, with the focus being on the perspectives of the employees. Egger was founded by Fritz Egger Sr 60 years ago, and is now run by his sons Fritz and Michael Egger. 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, from Russian quality manager Anastasiya Cherkasova to sales employee Roman Klejzerowicz from Poland. Employees from different areas and locations all have their say.
The company says that the video picks up on the themes that have always characterised the Egger Group, namely 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.
Michael Egger said: "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."
