expansion, starting with the launch of a subsidiary in Belgium
The success of its venture into Belgium led Safilo to expand
throughout Europe, opening distribution subsidiaries in Denmark,
Spain, Germany, and France.
Back in Italy, Safilo added a new factory operation, in
Martingnacco-Udine, in 1980, dedicated to the production of
metal components for eyeglass frames.
Safilo supported the growth of its stable of brands with the
steady expansion of its industrial and distribution capacity. In

facility on a 25-acre site in Padua, which opened in 1990.

Longarone dedicated to the production of metal frames. The new
site also enabled Safilo to enter the fast-growing market for
lightweight titanium-based frames.
