The eyewear giant has just informed its exit from the National Association of Optical Goods Manufacturers one year after leaving Confindustria.
Luxottica leaves Italian association Anfao. The eyewear giant said goodbye to the National Association of Optical Goods Manufacturers (Anfao) a year after leaving Confindustria. Leonardo Del Vecchio, head of the company, has made the decision to leave the association after the expiration of the contract.
“The loss of Luxottica is very important for us,” Giovanni Vitaloni, president of Anfao, told Il Corriere della Sera. After the merge with Essilor, the group concluded its first fiscal year with sales for 4.2 billion euros boosted by the lens and optical instruments divisions and the store network. A year ago, the sum of the income of both companies (excluding the business they did between the two) was 3.9 billion euros.
Founded in Milan in 1954, the association is a group of companies of the sector that has more than 130 members and gathers the main eyewear companies of Italy throughout the entire supply chain.
