By opening a new workshop in Beaulieu-sur-Layon, Maine-et-Loire,France, Louis Vuitton now has 16 workshops in France. The house founded in 1854 continues to strengthen its presence on the country while preserving the excellence of its know-how.
With this new space dedicated to creation, the house plans to create 300 jobs. The trunk maker behind the "art of travel" already has nearly 4,300 employees in its 16 French workshops and plans to hire 1,500 by the year 2022. Barely open, the Beaulieu site plans to double its workforce and invest in the adjoining land space and even plans to double its area.
With this new production unit, Louis Vuitton continues to innovate by developing "new generation" workshops that are more respectful of the environment and the working conditions of its artisans. A fully glazed facade and a north orientation provide natural light to leather goods. The 6,000 m2 site, punctuated by open and flexible spaces, has high energy performance and is adapted to the specific requirements of the business.
