A visit to Egger

It was great to be able to visit Egger, Tynedale and Northumberland's biggest private sector employer, last week. I have visited the factory many times before, and as always it was good to meet many of the team and get an update on the need for more timber. The factory employs more than 700 people and is one of Europe’s most advanced wood-based panel production facilities. Egger also has a fantastic apprenticeship and employee training scheme, and 10% of its workforce are currently or have been apprentices.

A great business that is such an important part of our local community- I really enjoyed my visit.
