Co. (Eagon USA Corp’s
parent company) was established in 1972 in Inchon,
Korea at a time of economic boom in the Korean
plywood industry and expanded its plywood production
capacity to a milestone of 100,000 cubic meters
per year in 1978.
In 1980, Eagon became the first Korean company
to develop marine container flooring plywood and
began to diversify its customer base away from
ordinary plywood. In the same year, Eagon
USA Corp. was established in the United
States as Eagon's
wholly owned subsidiary to supply raw materials
and semi-finished products to Eagon
and to third parties.
Currently, Eagon has six overseas subsidiaries
and two overseas offices engaged in variety of
activities, from the wood products to entire building
materials. As sourcing for raw materials became
increasingly difficult and more costly, Eagon
in 1989 established Eagon Resources Development
Co., (S.I.) ltd. in the Solomon Islands and acquired
logging rights to 300,000 hectares of virgin forest
from the local government. Eagon established Forestal
Lautaro S.A. in Chile in 1993 for the production
of veneer. Eagon established Eagon Pacific Plantation
Limited for logging and reforestation activities
in the Solomon Islands in January 1996 and by
April 1997 Eagon established Yanbian Eagon Wood
Products Co.,Ltd. in China for the manufacturing
of high-quality lumber, laminated boards, and
veneers for export.
Domestically in Korea,
Eagon is now diversified into:
Eagon Industrial Co. LTD:
Manufacturing and distribution of various wood products, ranging from industrial plywood to engineered wood flooring products.
Eagon Windows & Door
Systems: Premium high-tech windows and
doors, curtain walls (projects) for residential
Environmentally-friendly wood products, outdoor
projects and other large scale contractual projects.
