PADUA Italy and SECAUCUS, N.J.—Safilo Group has announced the relocation of its North American headquarters from 801 Jefferson Road in Parsippany, NJ to 300 Lighting Way in Secaucus, NJ.

The new headquarters, which officially opened on July 10, 2017 are located approximately five miles from New York City and are housed on the second and fourth floors of the 10-story building.

This move is part of the simplification and modernization of Safilo’s North American operations. In October 2015, the distribution and logistics functions were merged into Safilo's Denver Distribution Center in Colorado while its other distribution center—which had previously been co-located within the Parsippany HQ—was closed and its returns and reprocessing functions were migrated to Denver in June 2016, the company said.

The new space was designed by Studio 1200, a multi-disciplinary U.S. design and architecture collective with direction from Safilo Group’s own interior design department, utilizing an open space work environment with the two floors totaling 55,000 square feet.

Housed in the new location is a fully stocked customer showroom, call center, numerous product workrooms and conference rooms, a large meeting space to hold town hall sessions and other events as well as an employee cafeteria and pantry.
