Like the way a family gets
ready to welcome a new baby, the Automobili Lamborghini’s ongoing strategic
investment programme, aligned with the launch of its new Super SUV the Urus,
sees its production site now doubled with the creation of substantial new
facilities and technologies at its factory headquarters in Sant’ Agata Bolognese, Italy.
As well as expanding the site
from 80,000 to 160,000 m2, the Urus will also bring about a substantial
increase in the company’s production capacity, doubling it to 7,000 units a
The new production facility
houses a new assembly line dedicated to Urus, the new finishing department for
all Lamborghini models, and a new office building with LEED Platinum
certification: the highest standard in the world for energy and environmental
certification in building design and construction. A new test track has also
been built with 13 different surfaces specific to SUVs, as well as a new
logistics warehouse, a second trigeneration power plant, and the new energy hub
for centralized production of all the energy carriers.
The creation of new buildings
and the installation of innovative technologies involved more than 600
enterprises working on the project with a total of 3,600 external workers.
The factory expansion was
completed in a record time of just 18 months, during which the company operated
at full production capacity and achieved record sales in 2016 (+7% over the
previous year). The project was achieved
without neglecting Lamborghini’s commitment to environmental sustainability:
the entire production facility in Sant’Agata Bolognese maintains the carbon
neutral certification obtained in 2015.
The new Industry 4.0 assembly
line, dedicated entirely to the Urus Super SUV, integrates new production
technologies to support workers in assembly activities.
