Why did you decide to invest in Euskadi, what institutional support have you had?

The company has always had its headquarters in the Basque Country, which is also where it centralizes its operations. Additionally, the zero kilometer strategy translates into having high added value products based mainly on local raw material (radiata pine from Euskadi), with its consequent positive repercussions on the company itself and its environment. From the moment of its start-up, the Egoin Group has received support from both the Provincial Council of Bizkaia and the Basque Government, focused both on the business design stage and on its start-up as well as on its consolidation stage in terms of investment, training, internationalization, management improvement, R&D&I, etc.

What resources in the Basque Country would you recommend to future investors? (logistics, qualification of people, R&D network, institutional support, supplier network, quality of life, soil qualities,…).

In general, a mix of all of them.

How do you see the company in 10 years?

Today, while maintaining its basic principles and its original culture, the EGOIN Group is a highly innovative business group focused on diversifying its market. This is reflected in its vocation to develop wood-based construction solutions that respond to the most emerging market trends (sustainability; energy efficiency; the technical requirements of contemporary architecture…) and in its commitment to having a presence in the main geographic markets where wood construction plays an important role. The EGOIN Group intends to continue strengthening its investment and training in R&D in order to be the benchmark for wood construction solutions. Specifically, the Egoin Group’s vision is to be the SOLUTION in SUSTAINABLE WOOD CONSTRUCTION, and where the forestry-wood sector will be key to the development of BIOECONOMICS. In this way, the Egoin Group aims to become a European benchmark in the sustainable wood construction sector; with a high degree of digitalization and based on the excellence of its services aimed at customers and prescribers; integrating the entire value chain, with its own technical department, its own raw material manufacturing, numerical control manufacturing, assembly workshop, prefabrication and turnkey assembly. The Egoin Group’s Strategic Project for the period 2021 – 2024 has as its mission to turn the Group into a technological and market reference in the wood construction sector in Southern Europe, covering all the links in the value chain, from the first transformation of wood, through the design, engineering and manufacture of its own construction solutions and ending with the construction and assembly of structures and buildings, using its own state-of-the-art technology. And all of the above, motivated and inspired by values and references such as sustainability, circular economy, the traction of companies in the sector, quality, safety and innovation.
