Sant’Agata Bolognese, 23 September 2016 – Today, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi paid a visit to Lamborghini's production facilities at Sant’Agata Bolognese, in a moment of historic expansion being experienced by the company, a producer of excellence in Made in Italy craftsmanship.
Mr. Renzi was welcomed by Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali together with members of the company's management team. Mr. Renzi's delegation visited the factory where the Huracán and Aventador are produced. During their visit, they focused on a new area that is under construction, where a 70,000 square-meter manufacturing hub is being built for the new Lamborghini SUV slated to debut in 2018. Mr. Domenicali presented the expansion project to Mr. Renzi where work is proceeding quickly to complete the new factory, a new logistics center, a test track and additional R&D departments. The expansion will result in a significant increase in the number of employees and will also double sales volumes.
“Lamborghini is currently undergoing a momentous change. It is embarking on a remarkable period of growth, thanks to the new SUV to be launched in Sant’Agata Bolognese. This was made possible by the technical and industrial synergy of our Group and by the support of the Italian Government and the Emilia-Romagna Regional Administration. The project is a significant expression of a new approach to doing things together, through the joint efforts of government agencies, labor unions and companies; an approach involving different experience and responsibilities. Such a joint project is an activity that will effectively create confidence in the future, stimulate other positive examples of industrial growth and enhance our country's level of competitiveness,” said Mr. Domenicali.
