Headquarters of the EGGER Group - St. Johann in Tyrol
The first factory of the Egger Group was launched in 1961, in a very picturesque part of Austria - in Tyrol. Today, we are bringing you a little bit closer to the town where the headquarters of the Egger - St. Johann in Tirol, as well as our oldest factory producing chipboard.
The village has over 9,000. residents, lies on the border of two mountain ranges Kaisergebirge and the Kitzbühel Alps, is a ski base and sports center.
The family-friendly ski area has 60 km of various slopes with all levels of difficulty and 17 lifts. Filmed episode for skicrossu and the cross-jump obstacle course is a great opportunity to try your hand in this new, exciting sport discipline. Another attraction is the largest ski station in Austria, the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental.
St. Johann In winter offers 270 km of cross-country ski trails.. Every year, there is a great international ski run Koasalauf Tirol, where the start is over 2,000 participants.
Market in St. Johann, where a beautiful baroque church stands, is the central point of the village and the main meeting place for its residents and guests, and the surrounding shops encourage walks and shopping.
St. Johann is a typical Tyrolean tourist town - it has 4,500 beds available for guests in various categories. And it is in this wonderful environment that our first production plant has been operating for almost 60 years. Its activity is neutral for the local natural environment and does not affect the tourist attractiveness, and even the inhabitants use preferential conditions from thermal energy produced by the company's hot air generator and thus reduce CO2 emissions.
Environmental protection and sustainable use of raw materials are extremely important to us. We are well aware that the region of Warmia and Mazury is the "Green Lungs of Poland" and an equally attractive tourist region as Austrian Tyrol, which is why we pay particular attention to the quality of air in our investment area. Therefore, also the factory in Biskupiec will be equipped with the most modern equipment limiting the emission of pollutants into the air.
