One of the competitive advantages underpinning the Group’s past and future successes is the vertically integrated structure that Luxottica has built over the decades.
In manufacturing, the Company has, over decades, vertically integrated all the phases of the production process to attain a level of efficiency in line with the quality of products and services it offers.
Direct control of the entire production platform makes it possible to verify the quality of the products and processes, introduce innovations, discover synergies and new operating methods, and optimize time and costs.
Direct distribution enables Luxottica to offer its products in the major developed and emerging markets and achieve a unique understanding of end users’ needs and tastes.
Control over product distribution is viewed as a strength by stylists and fashion houses who come to Luxottica to produce their eyewear collections and access the Group’s global and widespread distribution network.
