A Strong International Partnership – EGGER and Christiani
Wood is one of the most beautiful, diverse, and sustainable raw materials from nature. The history of mankind would not be conceivable without wood. Yesterday and today, the raw material wood with a differentiated value chain can be found in almost every area of life.
The Austrian EGGER Group is a pioneer and global group in the wood processing industry. Since 1961, the family-owned company has been based in St. Johann in Tyrol and employs 9600 people at 19 locations in 9 countries.
The productive use of wood has required professional qualifications and competences for thousands of years. Numerous occupational profiles have emerged around the timber industry, which are constantly being modernised in the age of digitisation.
