Eggers Industries with locations in Two Rivers and Neenah have been acquired by VT Industries of Holstein, Iowa. The announcement was made this afternoon. Two Rivers City Manager Greg Buckley tells Seehafer news that employees and union leadership were notified this morning.
Buckley says there’s been “on-going” dialogue about a possible transaction.
Eggers was founded in Two Rivers in 1884 with a focus on manufacturing farm baskets. The company expanded a short time later and quickly became the premier manufacturer of veneer seating. The Eggers brand is well known and respected for its robust product portfolio of premium architectural door products—wood paneling—custom conference tabletops and veneer-wrapped components.
VT Industries Inc. is North America’s leading manufacturer of architectural Wood doors, VT Dimensions countertops and A’Vant Vanity Surfaces. The Two Rivers City Leader (Buckley) adds—
Former Eggers Industries Owner Jay Streu states in a new release “We’re really thrilled to be joining forces with VT Industries. We have combined the two highest quality and most innovative architectural wood door businesses together as one powerful team and believe the acquisition is a positive move for our customers and the door industry as a whole.”
