Lamborghini Will Hire 500 Extra Employees for the Urus SUV Project

After setting a record for selling 3,245 vehicles in 2015, Lamborghini is now getting ready for the super sports SUV and the third Lamborghini model, the Urus, by doubling the size of its production site and taking on 500 extra staff. Around 180 of these new contracts have already been finalized.

The Italian carmaker recently hired 150 assembly line workers, technicians, and specialists, and now its workforce stands at 1,300 employees.

Lamborghini is experiencing strong, steady growth in sales and also in its workforce. We are getting ready for groundbreaking changes with the introduction of our third model in 2018, which points to stable, sustainable growth for our company. This is why our investments in human resources are more important than ever, as we continue to focus on excellence and continuous improvements in this new phase of the company’s future,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

The company doesn’t stop here as it plans to hire more technicians for its Quality, R&D, Purchasing, Industrial and Project Management divisions, as well as technical production staff.

Together with the Urus, the Italian automaker is expanding its production site from the existing 80,000 to 150,000 square meters.

It is a known fact that Lamborghini, like other carmakers, is investing a lot of time and money in human resources and aims to keep its employees well paid and motivated in order to ensure sustainable economic and social development.

According to Umberto Tossini, Human Resources, and Organization Director, the company is putting all the results it achieved in 2015 on the commitment and motivation of its workforce, which is also one of the reasons for the large increase in the number of employees in recent years. It is expected that once the upcoming Urus SUV gets into full production, the number of Lamborghini cars sold annually will double, transforming the carmaker into a true Ferrari rival in terms of sales.
