Discover our team


Design is the focal point where vision, creative inspiration and technology converge. Beginning with the first style sketches, the idea quickly takes shape in the design and development stages. Prototype makers transform designs into one-off pieces, crafted by hand with meticulous precision and later, the mold workshop designs and assembles the equipment needed to make the components for the new model. Designers use 3D technology to print very unique objects and complex shapes, which were previously difficult to produce using traditional techniques.   At every phase of the process – from design to industrialization – Luxottica performs rigorous and accurate quality tests. Every year the Group adds approximately 2,000 new styles to its eyewear collections, each frame an expression of Luxottica’s DNA: product excellence, commitment to innovation in technologies, styles and materials and unparalleled craftsmanship.




Our manufacturing operations are located in Italy, China, the United States, Brazil and India. Italy, with its six Italian plants – five in the Northeastern region and one near Turin, is at the center of Luxottica’s luxury eyewear production, combining the tradition of Italian craftsmanship with the speed and efficiency of modern automation. These factories represent 41% of global production output. Over the years, the Group has consolidated its manufacturing processes and allocated specific production roles and technologies to each plant. This has enabled Luxottica to improve both the productivity and quality of its manufacturing operations. Since 1997 Luxottica has had a presence in China through the Dongguan plant in Guangdong province. In 2006, Luxottica increased local manufacturing capacity through the construction of an entirely new facility; in 2010, it began producing plastic sun lenses to be paired with frames that are manufactured in the same location. Soon after, the Company integrated a new state-of-the-art plant, primarily dedicated to frame details and decorations. The Foothill Ranch facility in California manufactures high-performance sunglasses, prescription frames and lenses and assembles most of Oakley’s eyewear products. Oakley apparel, footwear and certain goggles are produced by third-party manufacturers. Luxottica’s Campinas plant in Brazil and a small plant in India serve the local markets. Luxottica is constantly investing in R&D to improve quality, efficiency and productivity. Over the years Luxottica has progressively diversified its technology mix from traditional metal, plastic injection and acetate slabs to include aluminum, wood, die casting, fabrics, the innovative LiteForce material coming from the aerospace industry and graphene, the revolutionary material that Luxottica first introduced in the eyewear industry. 




The Group’s distribution system, comprised of 13 distribution centers, is one of the most advanced and efficient in the industry. Globally integrated, it serves both the retail and wholesale businesses and links them to the production facilities. The system is fed by a centralized manufacturing platform that provides daily monitoring of global sales performance and inventory levels to meet local market demand. There are four main distribution hubs in strategic locations serving the Group’s major markets: Sedico (Italy) for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, select US markets and to the Group’s distribution centers in the rest of the world; Atlanta (US) for the North American market; Dongguan (China) for the Asia Pacific region and Jundiai (Brazil) for the local market. In addition, the Sedico hub manages customized services, such as Ray-Ban Remix, providing direct global deliveries. The overall structures operate as centralized facilities under a highly automated order management system, which services other Group distribution centers and, in some markets, ships products directly to customers, thereby further reducing delivery times and keeping stock levels low.



The wholesale distribution structure covers more than 150 countries, with approximately 50 commercial subsidiaries in major markets and approximately 100 independent distributors in other markets. Wholesale customers are mostly retailers of mid to premium-priced eyewear, such as independent opticians, optical retail chains, specialty sun retailers, department stores, duty-free shops and online players. In addition to giving wholesale customers access to some of the most popular brands and models, Luxottica provides them with pre- and post-sale services to enhance their business and maintains close contact with distributors in order to monitor sales and the quality of the points of sale.



With a strong portfolio of retail brands, Luxottica is well positioned to serve every segment of the market with a variety of differentiation points, including the latest designer and high-performance frames, innovative lens options, advanced eye care, everyday value and high-quality vision care health benefits. As of June 30, 2017, Luxottica’s retail business consisted of approximately 9,000 stores.



Luxottica offers consumers around the globe a superior online shopping experience that lives up to the same high as its bricks and mortar locations standards. Oakley, Ray-Ban and Sunglass Hut e-commerce websites serve as important sales channels that complement Luxottica’s retail operations and wholesale distribution.
