What once made a home in Parsippany now lives in Secaucus—SAFILO has taken its North American headquarters to Lightning Way in Secaucus, N.J. Opened in July of this year, the new office is conveniently located only five miles from New York City and embodies a clean and simplistic design with a modern flair.

To officially celebrate this new beginning, the company recently invited guests to the new headquarters for a special housewarming event. Attendees were given the opportunity to tour the new offices, view styles from Safilo’s new rag & bone and Moschino collections, and enjoy refreshments. Hosted by Safilo employees and its board of directors, the event drew over 200 guests including members of the Italian Trade Commission, independent eyecare professionals; buying group, chain and department store customers; and industry and license partners.

“This inauguration marks a milestone in Safilo’s 55 years of U.S. history of eyewear product and design leadership through enduring successful partnerships with eyecare professionals and retail partners,” says Safilo Group CEO Luisa Delgado. “Here is where globally trend-setting design and innovation offer important inspiration for our Group worldwide. We want a modern HQ work environment that is open to engage with our customers effectively, is designed to drive collaboration across functions and is attractive also to Millennial talent.”

For Safilo, North America is a market of globally symbolic and historically strong leadership. With the move to Secaucus comes the next chapters of Safilo’s North American history, and we too look forward to seeing what’s in store.
