In Sant’Agata Bolognese, 1,175 employees work at the 200.000 m2 (49.42 acre) plant site where the Aventador and from 2014 onwards the Huracán are produced on two assembly lines. In 2014 Lamborghini hired 192 new employees, 50 percent of them under 30 years, a countertrend to the unemployment rate for young adults in Italy, with the aim of continuing investment in professional skills development. Further recruitment is planned in 2015 with equally significant numbers.
In 2004, Lamborghini built the “Centro Stile”, a state-of-the-art world scale design center. Lamborghini also invests in sustainable production. A photovoltaic system on the roofs of the plant buildings, the largest in the Emilia-Romagna industrial region, generates electricity. This is an important step towards attaining CO2-neutral production, which has been defined as a goal for 2015. Automobili Lamborghini was the first company in the Italian automotive industry to earn EMAS certification and ISO 50001 certification; they are a testimony to the brand’s achievements in environmental management and energy efficiency.
Lamborghini has made decisive strategic moves for developing the corporation and the brand into a future of growth and innovation. At the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, a new idea made its debut – the Urus might become a new entry in the segment of sporty SUVs. The concept car combines fascinating design and excellent driving performance with a versatile character and everyday practicality. The study received overwhelming public applause worldwide.
