Husqvarna has opened a new headquarters in Varese, Italy this week. The three-story building will include not only offices for the Husqvarna staff, but also will include a testing cetner, and production center for prototype and racing motorycles.
At home in Varese is Husqvarna’s development team, and the new HQ will include a presentation center and showroom for the team to show off their latest creations. Additionally, there is a small area that has been dedicated to top models and photographs from Husqvarna history, which may interest tourists.
Expected to increase Husqvarna’s production capacity to 40,000 motorcycles a year, it would seem the BMW acquisition of the company has done some good for the Swedish brand, as we suspect more than a few German Euros funded the new structure.
Husqvarna’s new facility will not only increase the number of bikes that roll out of the front doors, but it will also reduce the carbon footprint of the company as the building includes solar panels for generating electricity and hot water.
We hope to see some of the “prototypes” the company will be making at the new facility in the near future.
