A magic atmosphere and a moment to experience the joy, celebration and sharing that have always distinguished Gruppo LUBE. The group has always considered its employees to be part of the family and works every day for the common good and the success of and for everyone.
Research and development, vision, courage, determination, unity and team spirit are just several of the secrets of the success of Gruppo LUBE, but the real added value, an intangible asset that is difficult to match, are the people who make LUBE what it is and who are rightfully celebrated at the end of the year.
Many successes marked 2019, including the excellent financial performance that made Gruppo LUBE a sector leader, with an increase in its market share to 10.7%, but there are also many objectives set by the owners for 2020, including the launch of the new LUBE Design Collection, which will further consolidate its market identity, and the ambitious schedule of new openings of LUBE and CREO Kitchens stores. This latter brand has enjoyed a strong market performance over recent years, with an 18% increase in growth in 2018/2019 and fifth ranking in market notoriety and presence, with performance above the sector average.
The Christmas party offers the opportunity, once again, to celebrate the successes of the Group together and to thank all members of the LUBE extended family, which has worked tirelessly for over 50 years to reach new milestones.
