“The acquisition represents a first step in the entry of our group in the world of Japanese production. We will continue to invest in re-creating a productive center of excellence in Sabae, in line with the Luxottica model,” said Luxottica Group executive chairman Leonardo Del Vecchio. “For the first time in the history of eyewear, we will have two great artisan schools under the same roof, Italian and Japanese.”
