Text of Regions of Lithuania: Taurag—

  • Anders Myklebust, Managing Director, Egersund Net UAB

    When we moved some of our production to Taurag, our goal was for the Egersund name to become part of the industry in the area for a long time to come. It was its combination of proximity to Klaipdas seaport and Palanga airport, the regions highly qualified talent and the green energy options available which led us to choose Taurag as the perfect location for our business.

    The region offers an established and experienced production base for the key industries of agriculture and food processing.

    The region is conveniently located, with well-developed infrastructure: Taurag offers direct entry to Kaliningrad (Russia), as well as a developed private industrial park which is currently home to a number of international businesses, including companies from Scandanavia and the US.

    Green energy (from biomass, wind power, hydro energy, and solar systems) is produced widely within the region, ensuring reduced heating costs for local businesses.
