"Gray and EGGER partnered with full collaboration on all aspects of the project including schedule, cost, and design. We worked with EGGER and not for them. Both companies joined to essentially become one team which developed a high level of trust among everyone."
John Slone, Project Executive


The highly automated facility produces panel products used in a variety of manufacturing items and includes a fully integrated 3D model along with laminated wood joist glulams shipped from Europe.


Carsten Ritterbach, plant manager, Commercial Services, describes this facility as the “most modern plant in the world” for the type of product it manufactures.


At peak, 1,150 workers were on site for this project.
