Hublot First ground broken at the new manufacture
On March 3rd, Hublot has started the construction of a second large building which will more than double the surface area of its manufacture in Nyon.
This new unit, located right next to the original building, will be largely dedicated to the production of components for Manufacture movements and the production of watch cases. The micro-mechanical workshops, with the entire bank of CNC machines, along with the decoration, electroplating, general mechanical and washing workshops, to name but a few, will be installed within these new walls in August 2015, with the After-Sales service and some of the administration.
At the same time, the current building will be reorganised, allowing the Innovation, Research & Development department to be extended across the entire ground floor. This will enable the ASF (Assembly of parts), T1 (Assembly of movements) and T2 / T3 (Assembly of watch faces and watches) departments and the Complications workshop to be redeployed and expanded. Finally, the production unit in Gland, whose main activity is the manufacture of carbon fibre components and cases, along with the setting unit, will be joining the main site in Nyon..
8000 square metres will be built with the assistance of the architectural firm Coretra based in Nyon, allowing Hublot to create 100 new posts and bringing the company's staff within Switzerland to over 400 people. This project also represents an investment of 20 million Swiss francs by the company.
From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more
