EssilorLuxottica's Major Expansion: New $172 Million Eyewear Facility in Mexico

As XIAMEN ISUNNY PACKING CO., LTD, a key player in the eyewear packaging industry, we are excited to delve into the significant development by EssilorLuxottica: the inauguration of their new $172 million manufacturing facility in Tijuana, Mexico. This event marks a pivotal expansion for the global eyewear manufacturing giant, following the establishment of its first Mexican factory in 2016.


The initial factory set up by EssilorLuxottica in Mexico in 2016 was a considerable achievement, housing over a thousand employees and spanning 8,000 square meters. It had an impressive production capacity of approximately 10.4 million lenses per year. The recent inauguration on January 18th of their second factory is a testament to the company’s growth and commitment to innovation in eyewear manufacturing. According to Giorgio Striano and Norbert Gorny, joint COOs of EssilorLuxottica, the new facility spans 50,000 square meters and incorporates advanced manufacturing technology and smart factory capabilities.

This new Mexican factory, with an investment of $172 million, is set to create around 2,000 job opportunities and increase lens production by an additional 10 million units annually. This expansion also includes a state-of-the-art distribution center, equipped with the latest automation technology, capable of storing and transporting up to 25 million pairs of eyeglasses each year.

The project leaders highlighted that EssilorLuxottica’s expansion in Mexico aligns with their commitment to innovation, excellence, sustainability, and community engagement. This mirrors their recent initiative of opening a new factory in Thailand, demonstrating their global expansion strategy.
