Lamborghini to Resume Production Today
European hypercar Lamborghini will be re-opening its doors again as they are set to resume producing super sports cars and SUVs at its Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy factory today.
This as Automobili Lamborghini have announced a new model will be unveiled within this week.
Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stefano Domenicali made the announcent, saying that the virtual launch will be done on May 7, to "complete the model range."
The resumption of manufacturing operations follows as the Italian government eases lockdown restrictions in the country.
While its production will resume, the Philippines official distributor of Lamborghini vehicles in the country, PGA, has yet to open, in compliance to the extended enhanced community quarantine imposed Philippine government.
It can be recalled that Lamborghini has temporarily halted since March 13 due to government's anti-Coronavirus (Covid-19) measures.
While it has stopped producing vehicles during the lockdown period, Lamborghini made its time worthwhile by creating medical protection masks and visors for St. Orsola Hospital in Bologna instead.
Aside from that, they established a partnership with SIARE Engineering International Group for co-engineering and manufacturing breathing simulators.
The preparation for the company’s May 4 reopening involved discussions between Lamborghini officials and trade unions as they formulate measures governing the procedures for returning to work and the equipment to be used in order to ensure the maximum safety of Lamborghini’s workforce.
Established safety protocols begin with a comprehensive educational campaign.
“We are ready to restart with great energy, but also with strict protocols for safeguarding what is most precious to us—the safety of our people. This priority is why we were the first Italian automotive company to close, and it continues to be our guiding principle for a well-reasoned and safe recovery because we still have not won the battle against Covid-19,” Domenicali said.
He also said that Lamborghini will constantly monitor the pandemic’s situation in the country and will adjust its protocols according to guidelines which the Italian government and that of the Emilia-Romagna region may set.
“We closed the first quarter of 2020 despite the situation with very positive results. From these results we want to secure our swift return to a leadership position, delivering our vehicles once again as soon as our dealers around the world reopen for business,” Domenicali said.
