In 2007 the Swiss Watch Manufacture Parmigiani Fleurier embarked on an extensive expansion programme. And, in September this year, their Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier production site was inaugurated. Parmigiani watches are now being made in this new production site in the heart of the Val-de-Travers, Switzerland.
Up until very recently, the production of Parmigiani watches involved over 500 individual craftsmen, 50 various trades, and four different production sites. The new 6700 meters-squared production site inaugurated on 4 September in Fleurier now brings together the various workshops under a single roof.
In recent years the Parmigiani Fleurier brand has witnessed an increased demand as a result of a noticeably greater international distribution of their watches, as well as the growing requirements from third-party customers. Bringing together the four separated craft and industrial units at the the Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier site enables Parmigiani to meet the ever increasing expectations placed upon them without compromising on quality, quantity, efficiency and reliability.
The new facility has been designed and constructed with everything in mind, including the future. The current production area of 6700 meters-squared can easily be extended to a total production area of 16,000 meters-squared.
Seeing this expansion through to completion confirms the Sandoz Family Foundation’s commitment to enabling Parmigiani to maintain its roots in Swiss watch-making know-how and continue to play a prominent role in haute horlogerie.
