2022, an important year for Gruppo LUBE
An important year for Gruppo Lube. 2022 has ended with a positive result, starting with expansion across the country. A full 100 new stores were opened, which took the total number to over 600 certified Cucine Lube and Creo Kitchens stores across the country. «An increasingly broad-based sales network in all regions - says the company - is the mark of a result that is demonstrated every single day in our sales, which once again confirmed in 2022 the group's position as the leading brand in the kitchen furniture industry and its top place in the kitchen manufacturers’ ranking in terms of domestic market share».
There were many successes in 2022, such as the excellent economic performance that made Gruppo Lube the leader on its reference market. Year-end revenues totalled Euro 270 million, up by Euro 21 million (or 10%) on 2021. «During the year, the company continued with the Industry 4.0 investment plan started in 2018 and being implemented on the technology of the brand, acting as an industry benchmark in this aspect as well».
As is traditional, the company brought together its big family of over 600 employees on 23 December, to celebrate Christmas together and to share the events and results that have characterised the year. A highlight of the Christmas event was a beautiful concert by the Macerata Wind Orchestra. It was followed by the traditional mass celebrated every year by the Bishop of Macerata, Nazzareno Marconi, at the company's production plant, in the presence of the company owners and top management. The event concluded with the arrival of Father Christmas, who handed out toys to all the excited children waiting by the huge Christmas tree. A magical atmosphere and a moment of joy, celebration and sharing, the hallmarks of every Gruppo Lube Christmas event.
«Being Lube means being unique, but, above all, being united - emphasised the CEO, Fabio Giulianelli - This year, more than ever, we have demonstrated that we can reach the major milestones if we work together. The presence of our excellent kitchens is increasing across the world and, with the opening of a full 100 stores over the last year, we have now reached 600 certified stores».
