A day of celebration dedicated to employees and their families. For the first time under the banner of EssilorLuxottica, the company has opened the doors of the historic factory in Agordo set up for the occasion in Luna Park style. The event dedicated to employees and their families has not taken place since 2015. Now the company, which in the meantime has become an even bigger multinational after the merger with the French Essilor, welcomes the workers again, as the founder Leonardo Del Vecchio had decided.
The Agordo factory
The day took place in an area of 50,000 square meters on both sides of the Cordevole river which welcomed the more than 15,000 adults and children who took part. To seal the relationship with the Belluno area where it all began, Leonardo Maria Del Vecchio also wanted to be present, the fourth of the six children of the founder of Luxottica, who has the position of chief strategy officer in the group. Then, the president and CEO of EssilorLuxottica Francesco Milleri, the honorary president of Luxottica, Cavaliere Luigi Francavilla, the manager alongside whom Del Vecchio had started the growth of his eyewear company, which grew to become the world's number one with over 25 billion in turnover and a market capitalization of up to 80 billion euros. At their side also the chief operating officer Giorgio Striano and the main figures of the company's management.
The bond with the Belluno area
The event once again confirms the special bond with the Belluno area, the scene of recent investments dedicated to expansion and modernization of the plants. Thanks to dedicated guided tours - explained the company - there was also the opportunity to visit some of the departments, now more beautiful and digital, where the eyewear collections that the whole world wears are born, with the new spaces oriented even more towards safety and sustainability and which best tell the story of the new integrated reality.
