Convention of the Presidents and Directors of the offices of the Sejmiks of the Voivodships of the Republic of Poland with a visit to EGGER Biskupiec
On the 5th of October 2018, we had the opportunity to host on our construction site representatives of the Convention of the Presidents and Directors of the offices of the Sejmiks of the Voivodeships of the Republic of Poland. The Olsztyn members of the Convention, who this year hosted a full line-up, decided to show, on the example of our modern plant, how the furniture industry is developing in the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship, in addition to tourism.
During the visit we presented to our guests the profile of the EGGER Group, our philosophy and values that guide us every day. On that day the mayor of Biskupiec - Kamil Kozłowski was also present and we took this opportunity to present our involvement in the life of the local community. Our guests were interested in choosing the location of our factory - we explained the advantages of Biskupiec and why we decided to locate our factory here.
The most important point of the meeting was a guided tour of our production facilities. Walking around the next halls we answered questions about, among others, the origin of the raw material that we will use for production, technical solutions applied, technological solutions responsible for environmental protection. An important aspect discussed during our talks was the level of planned employment, as well as additional benefits offered to our employees.
We are extremely pleased to have been able to receive such distinguished guests at our thresholds. The Convention of the Presidents and Directors of the offices of the Sejmiks of the Voivodeships of the Republic of Poland is a consultative and advisory body to the Union of Voivodeships of the Republic of Poland. During the meetings, which take place several times a year, issues concerning the functioning of provincial, economic and administrative self-governments are discussed.
On this occasion we presented our philosophy of cooperation with the Biskupiec self-government and involvement in the life of the local community in the places where our factories are being built. These actions were very positively received by the representatives of the Convention.
